WASHINGTON – Due to the unprecedented volume of recent H-1B filings, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is temporarily experiencing a receipting/data-entry (DE) front log at its Service Centers. In an effort to give our customers more accurate information about current receipting timeframes and USCIS service level commitments, we are providing the following projections for fee receipting and data entry processing for H-1B cap cases currently at our Service Centers:
Note: These projections do not apply to Premium Processing or I-129 H-1B (cap or non-cap) cases.

USCIS reminds 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. If a response is not received from USCIS within thirty days of the dates listed above, please check the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov or call USCIS customer service at 1-800-375-5283 for updated processing information.
