Can prior approvals be used when a sponsor files a petition for more than one worker – in the same way, that generally just one site inspection is needed to verify the legitimacy of the religious organization? For example, can prior approvals be referenced to show the petitioner’s legitimacy so that multiple documents aren’t required?
According to the USCIS regulations, each petition must have the initial evidence that is required for each petition. The petition is then judged on its merits. Petitioners can submit additional information “(including approval notices for other cases from the same petitioner): if the petitioner thinks that will help. Since the information is just supplemental, the petitioner still needs to submit the initial required evidence.
