USCIS personnel physical visit to my sponsor in USA


My employer has filed the H1-B visa for me this year and there is no update as yet on my application status, I have not received any receipt till date and so I thought my application was not picked in the lottery.

But I was recently being told that a person from USCIS has visited my employer about my application. Does it mean that my application is being processed? Does this happen?


Yes, it would mean that it is under processing. USCIS field team personal usually comes to location in random, to verify if you indeed work at the mentioned location in the petition.
