Change of Status F1 to H4


I submitted online application (I-539) for change of status from F1 to H4 visa status. After submitting application online I immediately got receipt confirmation. Receipt number start with MCT***** and have California Service center address at bottom left.

The issues which I am facing are:

  • I can’t track the case from uscis case status here website it gives me following error:
    " * Error: The application receipt number entered is invalid. Please check your receipt number and try again."

Although i can login to uscis account and verify my application status.

  • Another issue is that, I haven’t received any hard copy (receipt notice) for this online application, which I always get when I file any application with USCIS.

Does anyone have same experience or have any knowledge about above scenario.
Thanks in advance for your help.

If you filed online, you must track the status from within your account. You may not recieve a hard copy of receipt if you filed online.
