Will USCIS stop processing petitions after October 1st?

Hi Guys,

The company that sponsors the H1B for me rejects to tell me the receipt number. Now they say that no decision on my case has been made. I am anxious about how long I should wait for them to tell me. I thought if I knew for sure that after Oct 1t USCIS will stop processing petitions, I would have more oportunities for my further steps.

Please tell me if USCIS stops processing petitions after October 1st. All links to official information are highly appreciated.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Well, they should tell you the H1B Receipt number, if your application was properly filed on time. USCIS does not stop processing applications after October. The fact is that H1B 2013 quota was complete on June 11th, http://redbus2us.com/h1b-visa-2013-cap-count-updates-by-uscis/ .

There is no set time for processing. Once your application is selected for processing by USCIS, they can take anywhere from 2 to 6 months to process.   Your employer should share the H1B receipt number...something wrong here....check again.
