Case Approved but says Denial was sent out

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My friend who is on F1 STEM OPT had his H1B visa applied by his employer this April. In May he had to travel due to a family emergency. He came back in June but received an RFE for specialty occupation. His law firm responded to the RFE with supporting documentation. Yesterday we saw a change in his USCIS case status. It says Case Was Approved but in the third line it says a denial was sent out. Is it his Change of Status that got denied? If yes, what does it mean? His STEM OPT and F1 visa are valid until June 2020.

USCIS tools are not state of the art. As you can see the case status online is throwing out inconsistent information. Wait for official correspondence from USCIS via mail.

It is an mistake from USCIS. I got the same. But if you check case again today, they change from "denial notice" to "approval notice".
