H1B Regular Processing (Vermont Centre) April/May/June

Recommended Posts

Regular H1b transfer and extension based on approved I140 from previous employer. Still waiting, Lawyer says it takes about 4 months.

I did a regular transfer and extension(based on old employers I140) back in 2009 and it took 3.5 months.

So hoping to get it by September end.. I know this waiting is painful for everyone, but there is not much we can do about it, unless upgrade to premium..

Mine is a direct hire full time position.

My notice date is June 7th and still in Initial Review.I was told by my employer that they were going to convert to premium yesterday.I should see a status change within a week now. Sad thing is we had to face both the Wait and the Premium expenses :(

Dude your wait is longer than usual. Your attorneys should call USCIS to find out what is going on with your application. Or you can convert to premium. Good luck.

Thanks @Niko

My Employer says if we convert to Premium now it will trigger unnecessary RFE etc. So they says its better to wait and apply an L1 Extension on Sep 26/28 so that this will be in Process until my H1 is approved.

As my L1B and H1B are from same employer, am I eligible to work after the L1 expiry in-case my H1B status is still pending

You should expect maybe sometime soon. They are taking minimum of 3 months or more. Some have been waiting since mid May too on the forum so not sure what is up with VSC. It is the slowest right now, way too slow!

I just heard from the lawyer and got scanned "Courtesy Copy" of my approved H1b for 3 years. It was approved on 9/20 but the freaking website never changed the status. I got extension of 3 years(5/31/2014) based on my approved I-140 from my previous employer.

Good luck to everyone waiting. Check with your lawyer and don't trust the uscis website.

Notice Date: 15th Jun

RFE: None

Approval Date: 19th Sept.

I received my approval notice today from my employer but my application status still shows initial review. I believe that many of you waiting for such long periods may have already been approved but they have just not updated your status online. You may just want to contact your lawyers to esquire on your behalf..

To all just keep the faith. Good Luck!
