So You Received a NOIR (Notice of Intention to Revoke) – What Now? Visa Business Plans Can Help!

No immigrant wants to receive a NOIR (Notice of Intention to Revoke). However, being informed about what exactly a NOIR entails can help you understand your options and move forward in the best way possible.

So, what is a NOIR?

A NOIR is a revocation on notice of a visa petition issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. According to the USCIS website, a NOIR can be issued for many reasons, ranging from the presence of untrue or incorrect facts in the petition to a violation of the terms of the petition or other regulations.[1]

There is some good news: unlike an Automatic Revocation, a NOIR can be appealed to the Administrative Appeals Office.[2] Consequently, NOIRs include information that will be useful to you and your attorney in this next step, including details describing the grounds for the revocation, the time allowed for a potential rebuttal, and the particular form that should be used to appeal the decision.[3]

While receiving a NOIR can cause concern, there is light at the end of the tunnel. If your attorney has decided to submit a response to a NOIR, we can help!
