Thanks for the reply JoeF.


Usually H1B approval should get before Oct 01, as the status will get changed from Oct 01.


1) Is there any chance, that the H1B approval may get delayed, (if there is no RFE or query).

2) If I go for premium processing, will I get approval in 2 weeks ? Is there any chance, that they will put RFE/Query, just to delay ?
