Post H1B lottery .. how long it takes to get approval (assuming no RFE)


#1

Folks need a little help here. I got picked up in the lottery for H1B FY2016.
Its more then a month now and the case status hasn’t changed :
“On April 13, 2015, we received your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WAC15144XXXX3, and sent you the receipt notice that describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your receipt notice by May 13, 2015, please call Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283.”

Is there any timeline for the papers to be validated?

&
If all fall in place how long does it take to receive approval (I-797)?

Any information will be highly appreciated

thanks

Mine was regular processing.

Hi,

First of all it depends on which category you have filed the petition. I guess yours will be Regular Processing.

If that is the case, you may get the decision before the end of July. This is not a legal advice and am just telling based on my petition approval duration.
