H1B Extension status pending for over 3 months

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a h1B Extension Status pending for over 3months now. My Current H1B Visa is going to expire on 31st October,2015. I need to travel to india on 9th October and return 27th October.

But as i dont have valid visa stamp. Last i entered USA was on 22nd Feb,2014. so to re-enter i need to get a visa stamp with the approved H1B Visa as confirmed by my company. can you tell how long i have to wait for getting it Approved and is it taking long time these to get it approved?

I am waiting for my H1- B extension. I applied on May 26 2015 regular processing in vermont office. There has been no updates till now 5 sept 2015. On the website it says it takes 2 month for H1-B extention but its been over 3 months. I was wondering if anyone is in same situation as mine.

You should probably apply for premium already if you have to leave. Also your stamp is calid till 31st and you are returning before that, so shouldnt you be fine if it is just an extension?

Can anyone tell me if the H1B cases are processed in order they were received for example if the case received in 20th May  will be processed before than cases received after that date.

I am in the same boat. Applied for H1 extension with regular processing on May 2nd. Upgraded to Premium Processing on Aug 12th. No updates from USCIS whatsoever till now. It was showing as "Received and Receipt has been mailed" all the time.

Did the dates change on the status or is it still on the old status?

This is the only message I am seeing now "08/11/2015 - We received your request for Premium Processing of form I-129, Petition for a Non-Immigrant worker and mailed you a receipt notice"

 

and the Receipt Number Status shows as "Case was received and Receipt Notice was emailed"

Are there any rejections guys? I am also waiting for the approval. Mine was received on 15th June under regular processing. I believe I read it in ******** - someone got a response from USICS that curerntly they are processing May 1st week applications and may take another 40 days to get to June 1st week. Any idea about that? Is there any risk if I upgrade it to PP?

My case was filed in Dec 9th 2014 and got RFE in April 2015. Responded to RFE and USCIS received it on May 4th 2015. Its been 4 months+, still waiting for the status update. Please update this thread if anyone's application got approved for May 1st week or after that.
