H1B transfer receipt notice time

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to get an idea on how long it takes now to get the receipt notice due to holiday delays. Mine was shipped on Nov16 and delivered to USCIS on Nov19, still waiting for the receipt notice as of Dec03. I encourage others in the same situation to share your status under this post, so that we all know when to expect it.

Hi, did yours go to California service center too? My attorney said "it is taking 3 to 4 weeks for USCIS to issue a receipt". She said "issue", not "obtain", which makes me really anxious. Please post when you receive it as well. Thanks!

Dec06: still waiting for receipt.

Yes, mine went to California center too. This is really ridiculous. Can't believe it takes them such ab long time to issue a simple notice.

I am still waiting. My start date is next Monday, and I was required to bring the actual document not photo copy on that day. If I don't get it on Wednesday, will tell HR to delay start again.

Cannot believe it is taking so long.  I hope you will get it in a day or two! Please keep us posted when you receive it.

Has anyone in this thread also filed H4 along with H1? I filed my H1+H4 on 11/16 and got the H4 receipt just 4 days later but no signs of H1 receipt yet.

Not yet. Don't know what's going on at California center. Are you joining on receipt too?

Folks, please update this forum if you receive anything yet. Also, wondering if it helps if the attorney call USCIS or will it affect the case negatively?

Mine was shipped on Oct 24th to California and i got receipt on 2nd Dec. 

What is the receipt date mentioned by USCIS, though they replied on Dec 2nd. Does it have Oct 24th or Dec 2nd ?

Even with premium processing at Nebraska center, it is taking USCIS 10 days to issue receipt notice and that too via email.

I have postponed my start date to January. Now I only hope it will arrive by then. Very frustrated.

I saw in a different forum that people who filed on Nov 28th also got their receipts a week later. Is it like they ignored a bunch of applications during a specific time frame? My spouse's H4 receipt was sent to us just in 3 days time....but my H1 is still pending receipt...oh what a pathetic situation!!!
