H1B stamped not yet travelled, but employer requested to USCIS for Withdraw my petition.

Now status is ‘Correspondence Was Received And USCIS Is Reviewing It’ :

"On April 15, 2016, we received your correspondence for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number EXXXXXXXXXXX6. We are reviewing your correspondence,

  1. Can I travel to US with this Status : " Correspondence Was Received And USCIS Is Reviewing It"

  2. How long USCIS will take to withdraw petition, once they receive from employer.

  3. As my current employer initiated withdrawal petition, what will happen to my VISA validity and do I need to appear for lottery system again?

  4. Please anyone suggest how can I do visa transfer with this current status.

Please share your experience/suggestions which would show light on my US dreams.

  • You can still file a cap exempt and travel on the same stamp. Withdrawn applications still come under cap exempt.

  • You need to find an employer and provide them your current I797.

  • Why did your employer withdraw without informing you?
