H1B rfe response time

Aug 12, 2019 12 Comments

Received RFE while doing H1 transfer to Microsoft. It has been a little over 2 weeks and the lawyers haven’t responded to it yet.

They havent even told me about the details of RFE. They did ask for my W 2 and paystubs. When i asked them last, i was told that my case is still under review.

My original application was filed under premium processing.

How long does microsoft typcially take to respond to RFE?

    Had to recently go through this. Typically USCIS gives 90 days to respond and they respond somewhere between 80-90 day time period. Atleast thats what they have told me. I had to do an amendment though.

      Could be.. but had another colleague that had to go through same timeline for transfer but that person joined on receipt. I guess it depends if you hold to join with out approval!

      Raise it with your HR. Usually there is a part of hr department, responsible for immigration that can answer your request. And they can help speed the process

    op, can you still join on receipt in this case, while they prepare for RFE response?

      Yeah, that’s what they told me
      I am just hesitant since they haven’t disclosed the reasoning for RFE

    @capitalone ikl611 so did you join on receipt or still waiting for response from HR ? Did you talk to HR team about you would like to wait for Approval post RFE response and then join ?
