U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is temporarily experiencing a receipting/data-entry (DE) front log at its Service Centers due to the unprecedented volume of recent H-1B filings. In an effort to give its customers more accurate information about current receipting timeframes and USCIS service level commitments, USCIS is providing the following projections for fee receipting and data entry processing for H-1B cap cases currently at their Service Centers.

Note: These projections do not apply to Premium Processing or I-129 H-1B (cap or non-cap) cases.

California Service Center

USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of all form types by June 15, 2007.

Nebraska Service Center

USCIS is currently providing in time-compliance for receipting of all form types as of May 10, 2007.

Texas Service Center

USCIS is currently providing in time-compliance for receipting of all form types as of May 10, 2007.

Vermont Service Center

USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of all form types by June 2, 2007.

USCIS is reminding the public that it may take additional time for a Service Center to complete fee receipting and data entry of an application or petition received and for the receiving Center to mail the appropriate receipt notice. USCIS recommends that persons who have filed a petition or application with USCIS wait at least thirty days from the applicable receipt processing timeframe noted above, before contacting USCIS with inquiries about form receipting.
