H-1B Backlog

Feb 8 12 Comments

Yeah, now this seems to be the new term - H1B Backlog. California center is taking 9.5 months to 12.5 months for regular processing of H-1B application. Too much

    That is not updated frequently and appears to be incorrect information. My H1B transfer application got approved in January at the California Center after 2.5 months, even though the backlog at the time said 7.5 to 9.5 months or something ridiculous like that. There were many other people who had a similar experience as mine with recent approvals.

      It was updated on the same day of approval at the following page: https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov. If you create an account and add your case there, that for some reason gives you more up to date case status than the other page where you don't create an account. It was updated at the link above even before my lawyer got the notice.

      Cool. So theoretically you can join on receipt (not recommended). But since it's been more than 2 months now, check that page at least once a week. My approval came completely out of the blue around this time in the process.
