O-1 Visa, Petition returned to USCIS in Other Work Visas Posted April 25, 2013 · Report reply Thanks @Attorney_23 and Attorney_25. I do have my university in house lawyer helping me tracking everything. My IGA waiver is still pending so I have to wait for this O1. I don't know why we didn't get NOIR or NOID two months after the case reseach USCIS. I am trying to guage the time for the case staying in USCIS.
