I don't know about the check being credited...But still haven't received the Receipt.

I saw a post of someone who applied in premium processing in April 2009, He got the receipt in 8 calendar days. And that was in 2009, when the number of H-1Bs filed was considerably lesser during the first few days.

@ All who replied here:

please update this thread if:

1. your lawyer receives your receipt number via email.

OR

2. Premium processing check is deducted from your account.

like me, I am assuming all your packets reached on 04/02, which means its already 7 calender days for USICS. They only have time till next Tuesday I guess, else I am assuming its free for us :)

update from uscis.gov

http : / /www. uscis. gov /portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=cec8f9d386796310VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=68439c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

USCIS Continues to Accept FY 2013 H-1B Petitions

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced it continues to accept H-1B nonimmigrant petitions that are subject to the fiscal year (FY) 2013 cap. The agency began accepting these petitions on April 2, 2012.

USCIS has received approximately 17,400 H-1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 cap, and approximately 8,200 petitions toward the 20,000 cap exemption for individuals with advanced degrees.

USCIS will provide regular updates on the processing of FY 2013 H-1B petitions. These updates and helpful filing information can be found at USCIS’s website highlighting the H-1B program. Should USCIS receive the number of petitions needed to meet the cap, it will issue an update advising the public that the FY 2013 H-1B cap has been met as of a certain date, known as the “final receipt date.” The date USCIS informs the public that the cap has been reached may differ from the actual final receipt date.

If necessary, USCIS may randomly select the number of petitions received on the final receipt date that will be considered for final inclusion within the cap. The agency will reject petitions subject to the cap that are not selected, as well as those received after the final receipt date. Whether a petition is received by the final receipt date will be based on the date USCIS physically receives the properly filed petition, not the date that the petition is postmarked.

Cases for premium processing (faster processing of certain employment-based petitions and applications) of H-1B petitions filed during an initial five-day filing window are undergoing a 15-day processing period that began April 9. For all other H-1B petitions filed for premium processing, the processing period begins on the date that the properly filed petition is physically received at the correct USCIS Service Center.

Meanwhile, petitions filed by employers who are exempt from the cap, as well as petitions filed on behalf of current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap within the past six years, will not count toward the cap.

U.S.businesses use the H-1B program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. Such workers include scientists, engineers, and computer programmers, among others.

2 Questions for Sharingaan and SPUSA:

  1. If you paid for your own Premium Processing, check is already applied in your account ?
  2. How you came to know about the receipt number ? your lawyer received and informed you guys ?
