TCS filed H1B petition for me this year Apr 2015,
My case for H1B was picked in 2015 may lottery and got the receipt. However there has been no status change since then.
I keep checking the status with my employer , they have been telling me that its as pending with UCIS since may. I was told that no RFE has been issue.
Can a H1B petition stay in pending status post Oct 1? Is there a chance of it getting approved?
All my colleagues and friends petitions have been approved.
Have there been any know cases where it is stretched for such long time?
Furthermore they are saying
Dear Associate, We did not receive petition number, could you please wait and cooperate.
When do we usually receive petition number, only after approval or after lottery?
