How to find out if the employer has actually filed my H1B?


I am filing my H1B with one of the employer I found on internet. I need to know, how to find out that my employer has actually filed my H1B? what should I ask him for, any document or some other thing.

Thanks & Regards,



Ask for a copy of the receipt. Just the receipt number may not work, since they may just give you another applicant’s number.


Thanks for replying to my question.
what kind of receipt should I ask for? He is ready to give me LCA (but LCA won’t have my name on it) copy, Is that enough.

No, when the petition is filed, USCIS will give a receipt. You need to ask for a copy of that receipt. So, you need to wait till the petition is filed and once your employer receives the receipt notice, ask for it.

Hi Ranju,

Any progress on the application ? Has it been taken forward.

I have also got similar offer and in dilemma about taking chances !

Do we get the receipt when it is selected in lottery or as soon as the application is submitted?

Thanks in Advance
