What is a “specialty occupation”?

According to USCIS, a specialty occupation is a job that is specialized and should have the following basic standards,1) knowledge from a specific field of study and 2) At least a Bachelor’s degree in an academic field related to the work. Besides, the job position needs to meet the standards of the USCIS as the specific duties of the position are so specialized that only a person with a US bachelor’s degree or higher related to the responsivities of the role could perform. Therefore, when USCIS challenges for a position as a specialty occupation, it sends the petitioner a request for evidence (RFE)asking s/he to demonstrate how the position meets the criteria. The RFE will have all the criteria mentioned why the petition did not meet.
