Our intent is to save lives and reduce workload by about 30-40%. We see ourselves taking care of end-to-end immigration, employment, family and support as much of the world as possible.
As much as we all love to travel the world, the process of immigration can be quite baffling, even for seasoned globe-trotters. Immigration is a subject that brings much agony and anxiety to the minds of travelers due to the process-related and legal implications involved. This is especially true for countries like the USA, which have stringent regulations and guidelines.
The landscape of US immigration has been rapidly changing since the pandemic. After years of restrictions aimed at slowing down immigration, several immigration policies have been rolled back since the election of President Joe Biden. Along with less restrictive regulations, the rapidly improving economy and business climate also invite more investors, professionals, and students to the United States today.
Individuals traveling to the US require tons of documentation to get a travel permit. However, despite having the right credentials and assistance, many fail to create appropriate visa petitions. Moreover, tracking petitions throughout their lifecycle, evaluating them, and correcting them in accordance with the latest U.S. Citizenship & Immigration (USCIS) guidelines is a huge workload for both ‘beneficiaries’ (i.e., the person willing to immigrate) and the ‘petitioners’ (i.e., sponsor/organization supporting) them.
In any immigration process, there are typically three parties involved – a petitioner, a beneficiary, and a legal body(attorney or law firm). However, they often have to work individually to make the immigration process a success. This complicates petition tracking and leads to poor visibility over the entire process. Additionally, exchanging confidential information and documents over email can raise security concerns.
In the wake of the pandemic, many organizations moved towards cloud technologies and hybrid work models, making remote collaborations much faster. Immigration law firms embracing such technologies are, therefore, uniquely prepared to meet the rising and ever-evolving migration challenges. Cloud technologies facilitate easy and secure access to client documents, forms, and deadlines, improving accuracy and speeding up the preparation of immigration documents. However, such technologies also have limitations, and most only cater to law firms.
Petitioners, beneficiaries, and attorneys/legal firms involved in the US immigration process all have a unique set of challenges to overcome, which are discussed below:
- Attorneys/Legal Firms: The ability to manage multiple cases and petition types (visas, RFEs, green cards, forms), support many client types (employment, family, humanitarian), ease of use (guided petition building), collaboration, scheduling, marketing, invoicing, etc. are some of the recurrent needs for immigration law firms.
- Petitioners: Typically, petitioners want the ability to use many employment-based petition types (visas, RFEs, green cards, forms), ease of use (guided petition building), analysis, collaboration with attorneys and beneficiaries, transparency, events and alerts, compliance, reporting, etc.
- Beneficiaries: Most beneficiaries want the ability to choose multiple petition types and get online support for collaborative petitioning, ease of use, and transparency over processes, events, and alerts.
The above issues have bothered immigrants, beneficiaries, and practitioners for decades with no solution, leading to many rejections and RFEs (Request For Evidence). Hence petitioners, beneficiaries, and attorneys involved in the immigration process were in need of a collaborative, secure, and transparent platform that reduces their workload improves petition quality and helps smoothen the application process. Thankfully, solutions like ‘Imagility’ address the above issues head-on and simplify the immigration process through automation, collaboration, and innovation.
This review will focus on Imagility, a cloud immigration platform – that improves the outcomes of various US visa applications, minimizes RFEs, reduces workload, and improves visibility over the petitioning process. Through this review, we will cover the following points:

The platform also features a shared virtual timeline to help visualize the progress made during the entire lifecycle of the visa application process and offers suggestions on how they can be improved and expedited.
Imagility takes care of all immigration and compliance needs while offering a hassle-free user experience through features such as petition analysis, virtual adjudicator, letter templates, RFE response building, compliance management, and document management, among others. In addition, the platform allows companies to complete immigration formalities with employees and legal bodies simultaneously, so each has a clear picture of the actions and credentials required at different points of the petitioning process.
Imagility allows companies and legal firms to simultaneously cater to multiple cases, keeping track of each case individually. Employees can easily be onboarded and offboarded into the portal and be notified directly about actions and documentation required. In addition, the platform can handle multiple visa types and offers forecasting features to help track, manage and control the immigration process with standard and customizable reports.
Imagility ensures that employer obligations are met, including public and private access file storage for beneficiaries, LCA posting and acknowledgment, I-9 forms, FDNS compliance, and internal audits.

Key Features of Imagility
Integrated Profile & Petition Management
Imagility helps beneficiaries coordinate digitally with petitioners and attorneys to create profiles with accurate details about their personal and professional backgrounds. Moreover, both the petitioner and the attorney have access to data entered by the petitioners. Beneficiaries can also view how their petition is created via timelines and contribute whenever required. Easy accessibility to data and transparency helps all parties involved and significantly reduces the time and effort involved in creating petitions. Employees can also be onboarded and offboarded through the platform.
Imagility allows both attorneys and petitioners to collaborate with beneficiaries. By reviewing LCAs and occupation details on the platform, beneficiaries can also advise petitioners about how applications can be improved, which boosts the possibility of approvals. Additionally, Imagility automatically collates data from applicants and sponsors to generate fool-proof, comprehensive, and accurate RFE responses and H-1B applications.
Ease of use
The imagility platform is easy to learn and use for all parties involved in the immigration process (petitioners, beneficiaries and attorneys). The platform allows you to easily onboard beneficiaries/dependents, choose the visa type and adhere to the guidelines suggested. Additionally, the platform improves transparency over the immigration process for all parties involved and offers suggestions on improving applications further.
Multi-user Support & Accommodative Usage
Imagility can be used by petitioners, beneficiaries, and legal bodies individually as well. For instance, in the case of family-based visas, just an attorney could be involved, and no external petitioners are required. Similarly, beneficiaries who want to delegate their responsibilities to petitioners or are unable to work on them (e.g., children and the elderly) can assign a preparer to add dependents’ data and a reviewer to analyze them through the portal.
Multinational companies that frequently send employees overseas can use Imagility to reduce their workload. Law firms dealing with immigration formalities can also use the platform to their advantage. Legal firms or companies acting as beneficiaries can instantly create companies/entities and users in the platform.
Automated Notifications & Suggestions
Imagility allows attorneys to view all data provided by beneficiaries and petitioners and notify them about any missing information/documents through the platform. Furthermore, all tasks are color-coded to give petitioners and beneficiaries visual cues about in-progress, completed, and pending actions.
Imagility also offers a ‘Virtual Adjudicator’ that evaluates petitions on 9 critical factors using an algorithm. This allows all parties to understand what the immigration application is lacking and how it can be improved. These automated suggestions generated after analyzing petitions can greatly help beneficiaries and petitioners.
Complete Visa Petition Builder
Imagility offers a dedicated petition builder to help you create, review, analyze and improve documentation to boost approval rates and reduce RFEs. It automatically populates data based on the ‘Visa Type’ selected and allows you to modify job descriptions and duties for higher accuracy.
Imagility also offers you several templates for creating cover and support letters, which you can customize per your needs. You can also choose to get the petition printed in a single collated final document, get receipts and get your final decision through the portal– all in a matter of hours. Additionally, it allows you to choose between employment-based petitioning support (for employees willing to migrate with the help of their organizations), and family-based support (for migration of family members of the petitioner)
Security & Compliance
Imagility is hosted on Amazon’s AWS cloud platform, ensuring maximum uptime and high security. It is also powered by DigiLocker, which secures your confidential digital documents safely in ‘Private’ or ‘Public Access’ folders. Further, it ensures that all petitions are in accordance with USCIS guidelines and protocols. The platform also provides suggestions for documentation required and possible audit questions based on your application.
Collaborative Petition Review & Improvement
With Imagility, attorneys can easily collaborate and work with employers to review petitions. They can also acquire the necessary details to build the right narratives for beneficiaries, petitions, and RFE responses. All files can be exchanged instantly and securely using the platform, and attorneys are instantly informed when petitioners or beneficiaries upload their files. Additionally, attorneys can request documents and share feedback to improve petition quality.
Imagility improves the chances of getting a successful petition by allowing you to select the appropriate position details and duties through system suggestions. It also reduces the risk of failure by helping you select the right SOC code while creating the petition. Petitioners can also track and manage the Labor Condition Applications (LCA's) through petition audit logs.
Imagility allows attorneys/practitioners/legal firms to manage multiple cases simultaneously. The platform oversees all calendaring, and scheduling needs, provides reminders to different parties about activities/documents pending and allows attorneys to be in touch with their clients effortlessly. Additionally, Imagility helps legal firms with marketing, invoicing, time tracking, accounting, etc., making it a must-have for attorneys and legal firms dealing with uS immigration.
Managing multiple visa applications simultaneously can be challenging for both petitioners and attorneys. To address this issue, Imagility offers you a series of reports that you can use to understand the status of petitions and beneficiaries. Moreover, it allows you to create customized reports per your/your firm’s requirements. These reports are highly customizable (you can drag and drop the fields you want, add headers, footers, etc.) and can be scheduled for a group of recipients as well. You can also create custom report templates and drag the data to be added there.
In addition to the above features, Imagility has launched a Lottery App for H-1B visa applicants. It also allows applicants to find potential sponsors digitally. Additionally, the Imagility team also has a visa stamping and student application in the works, sure to simplify US immigration procedures in the near future.
Our Final Verdict
Imagility has tons of features that help digitize, unify and streamline the petition process for US immigration. Moreover, this end-to-end immigration platform is highly secure and allows petitioners, beneficiaries, and legal firms to work collaboratively to simplify the visa application process.
Imagility brings transparency to the petition tracking process while improving the efficiency of petition building and reducing workload, which helps law firms considerably enhance their profit margin.

Considering the wide number of applications, innovative features, and novel approach Imagility offers to immigration; we are inclined to give the platform a ‘Perfect-Ten’ in our review.
