H1B Extension -Regular processing time


Recommended Posts

I too have applied extension on Aug 28, still in initial review..

The current VSC processing date is May 7

You can also find the processing dates by going to uscis site on the left hand column clicking on the “Processing Times” (under I WANT TO). Pick the appropriate only "Service Center" (choose VSC) and find the number of your form (I-129 Extension).

Application receipt date : June 8th 2012

Center: Vermont service center

Status as of Oct 26th : Approved on Oct 25th

That's reassuring. Now, anyone, any updates from CSC...? The last updated report was showing CSC processing June 4th applications as of August 31st. Compared to VSC, CSC seems to be moving veryyyyyy slowly.

From what I read, it looks like CSC has not yet started processing June filings, yet, in the report released earlier this month (see my post above) they claim to be on goal (2 months); that is, processing filings from mid July...

Just looks like we cannot trust these reports.

Please feel free to correct me if my interpretation/assessment of the report is wrong.
