    H1b processing time -Vermont

    Please check the USCIS processing timelines by service center. Here is the link https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/
  2. As USCIS, previously announced that Premium Processing to re-open on Feb 19th 2019 for all other H1 Categories. Is it still holds true? Any new update on this ? Thank you!

    Specialty occupation RFE, needs client letter??

    I Guess, The Issue is Lot of the employees(Consultants/Contractors) are shielded in reaching out to the Employer Attorneys. As far as i know, Many of these employee's don't have access to Employer/Company Attorney's. They are better of consulting attorney's on their own on these issues.
  4. Any thoughts here ? https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/01/31/2019-00302/registration-requirement-for-petitioners-seeking-to-file-h-1b-petitions-on-behalf-of-cap-subject With new rules announcement on H1B program from DHS- Is this applicable to Fiscal 2020 H1B petitions ? I believe it mainly effects the H1B lottery process for Fiscal 2020 petitions. But i don't believe it brings any efficiency to the existing H1B holders or existing beneficiary's. It doesn't even talk about the H1B petition extensions and there is so much inefficiency and painstaking Process in H1B extensions. With California current wait time for I-129 extension petitions is 11 months. And let alone, including I-140 Process, waiting time for filing I-485, Wait times for Green card etc ... These rules doesn't solve any of these problems.... It almost sounds like DHS and USCIS are completely out of touch of reality of I-140 Process, I-485, Green card process etc. Looks like, They are mainly stuck in H1B lottery process for New petitions but doesn't seems to understand the downstream complexities. I guess, Today's DHS rule summarizes Trump's Jan 11th tweet....But now where it solves the simplicity, Certainty or let alone Path to Citizenship.. H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.
  5. Thanks for your response! I suppose then, Any H1 Petitions filing for extensions in 2019(Or filed in 2018 looking to upgrade to premium processing) will likely be able to do so starting from Feb 19th, As USCIS previously announced is planning to resume PP for all other H1 Categories on Feb 19th. https://www.uscis.gov/news/uscis-extends-and-expands-suspension-premium-processing-h-1b-petitions-reduce-delays
  6. Hello Experts, https://www.uscis.gov/news/alerts/uscis-resumes-premium-processing-fiscal-year-2019-h-1b-cap-petitions As we know, USCIS is resuming premium processing for Fiscal Year 2019 for H1B cap Petitions. So what does "Fiscal year 2019 H1B cap" mean ? Is this applicable only for NEW H1B visa for fiscal year 2019 ?(Meaning Applying H1B petition for the 1st time in 2019) What about H1's who had previous approval petitions applying for extensions in 2019, Will they be eligible as well ? What about previously applied petitions extensions(In 2018), Can they upgrade it to premium processing now? Thank you! Appreciate your response!

    H1B transfer and 60 days grace period

    Thanks for Correcting!
  8. Thank you! Appreciate your response!
  9. I believe you can stay after 240 days but you can't work. I would recommend to consult attorney! What was your receipt date in California service center ? What was the reason for RFE ?

    H1B transfer and 60 days grace period

    60 days grace period starts from the day your old employer revokes your H1B petition. Normally, companies don't revoke H1 unless there is specific reasons. You can check with your old employer. But more importantly i would be concern that your payroll will not be running since you're on the bench or not employed. Which becomes illegal! If i were you, i would request the new employer to expedite paper work in premium processing if you have that option.
  11. Not sure if this is the latest. As of now its Feb 19th 2019 https://www.uscis.gov/news/uscis-extends-and-expands-suspension-premium-processing-h-1b-petitions-reduce-delays
  12. Hi All, Do we know when USCIS is restoring H1B premium processing in early 2019 ? Last time i heard it was Feb 19 2019. Is this the latest ? https://www.uscis.gov/news/uscis-extends-and-expands-suspension-premium-processing-h-1b-petitions-reduce-delays Thank you!
  13. It's technically 60 days from when your employer revoke's your H1B petition. Say in your case, Its likely your employer will revoke your H1 on March 1st 2019. So it will be 60 days from March 1st. Anyways consult Immigration attorney for help!
  14. Your employer can open an E-Inquiry request. Reach out to your employer or legal team.
