CSC NOIR processing time and other questions

Recommended Posts

I got NOIR on my approved h1b transfer petition in nov 2018. we responded on dec 14 2018. I am FTE with a startup. 

Background. 
There was post approval site visit, I was present in office but my company's point of contact was not in office. My company was unaware of USCIS site visit process and told the DHS agent over the phone that he is not in office and asked the officer to come in a couple of days. The DHS agent never came back and sent out a NOIR. We responded by giving them proof of employment and proof of my stay in the vicinity of my office. door signin logs, availability of work, paystubs etc 
1. what is the processing time for NOIR? 
2. I have to travel outside USA to my home country and get my visa stamped july 2019. I cant avoid this travel. Will i have any issues in stamping with NOIR pending? 
3. Is there a way to expedite the NOIR response from USCIS? Via service request or congressman request? my travel is unavoidable. I have to confirm my travel as soon as possible and the best i can wait is for a couple of weeks. not more than that.

- Usual timelines for USCIS response apply here. should be less than 6 months of them accepting the evidence.

- Depends on if DOS can see the NOIR info or not in pims.  WHat are your options ? You have to travel anyway. Avoid travel if you can.  There is no magical answer here.

- Generally NOIRs cant be expedited. .

Remember that DHS/USCIS do not do site visits generally for legit and well known employers unless they are doing random audits. Your petition was selected for a site visit for a reason.

We contacted USCIS and they did not give proper response on estimated timeframe. Lawyer said its okay to travel. But still hoping for this to get cleared before July. When are you planning to travel? How long have you been waiting for?
