Delays in I-129 Receipt Notices

USCIS has released a statement acknowledging prolonged wait times for H-1B receipts. ”Due to the high number of I-129 petitions filed with USCIS recently, customers will experience a longer than usual period of time to receive their receipt notice from USCIS,” an official told the American Immigration Lawyers Association. USCIS expects to have receipts issued to most applicants within the normal 30 day span, but says that it may take up to 60 days from the delivery date in some cases. Officials recommend that applicants contact USCIS if they have not receive their receipts after 60 days.
