Received H1B 2014 Receipt Number with EAC, WAC – What Next ? Check Status ?

H1B Visa 2014 Case Receipt Number EAC Meaning Track Status

by Kumar · 3,541 comments

Some of you have been posting on the blog that  “ I have received so and so email from USCIS, it says so and so…what does it mean ? What is going to happen next ?”   Let me take some time to explain you the next steps or technically what happens after you have received your H1B Visa 2014 petition case number.

Before we dive into next steps, lets take some time to understand the USCIS Case receipt number.

What is the H1B Visa 2014 Case Number that starts with WAC, EAC ? What does it mean ?

If your visa petition was selected in H1B Lottery for FY 2014, USCIS would assign a case receipt number. It is a 13 digit number and typically starts with three alphabets like WAC or EAC based on where it was filed. Each of set of characters mean something in the case number. Here is the break down of H1B visa receipt number and its meaning.

We should break down the  EAC—13—XXX—XXXXX

First three digits indicate where the H1B petition was filed.

  • EAC – Vermont Service Center (old name: Eastern Adjudication Center).
  • WAC – California Service Center (old name: Western Adjudication Center).

Next two digits indicate the year when it was filed. NOT the fiscal year.

  • For H1B Visa 2014. It would be 13

Next three digits indicate the computer working day of the USCIS fiscal year that starts from October 1st. It indicates the computer work day, does not include weekends and holidays. USCIS computers do not work on weekends and USA National holidays J

  • For April 8th, it would be 128.

Next five digits is the actual case number. Most of the times, it would start with a 5.

  • Sample number would be 51244

Check out  detail article: Understanding your  H1B Visa Case number

What are the next steps ? Check H1B Visa 2014 petition status ?

After you receive your H1B Visa Receipt case number for FY 2014, all you would have to do is to track the status on USCIS website.

Premium Processing for H1B FY 2014 :  If you were to file H1B visa petition under premium processing, you would have received the case number and a confirmation email that your petition was received by USCIS and it is under processing. Usually your attorney or your employer would get that information. Once your case is approved, similar email with approval status would be updated via email.  A hard copy would be emailed after the emails to the address specified in petition.

Regular Processing for H1B FY 2014 : If you were to file your H1B visa petition under regular processing, you would not necessarily get an email from USCIS, rather you would get a hard copy receipt mailed to your employer or attorney.  Also, decision information would be mailed to your attorney or employer after decision.

Check H1B Visa petition status : You can check your H1B visa 2014 petition status by going to the URL : https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/Dashboard.do  and entering your case number. It would show the current status of your petition.

Did I miss anything ?  Any other thoughts to add ?

Nadi,
That’s a common problem with other cases filed w/ EAC. Try after few days or keep following this blog when others’ start reporting successful tracking of EAC numbers.

Awaiting case result April 21, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Hi Saurabh,

Mine too is the same case where I got the receipt no on April 15 but still the status is showing: case cannot be found. I understand that it may take some time to update it online but I have one question. My petition is filed in PP so when should I expect the result? After 15 days when I got the receipt number( April 15) or after the same gets updated on USCIS case statues website?

Thanks,

Saurabh April 22, 2014 at 1:41 am

Awaiting case result,
PP cases will be adjudicated by May 12 (15 calendar days from April 28). It can be approved or issued RFE anytime before that date.

Now i dont know whether they have received my file or not and whats gonna happen next.

Saurabh April 18, 2014 at 5:36 pm

Ramu,
It’s a hectic time at USCIS as the new fiscal filing also started on April 1. Check with your employer if USCIS indeed received the package. If you don’t hear back in 30 days, then ask your employer/attorney to follow-up w/ USCIS.

Hi Saurabh, Frustrating_Waiting,

My case number is EAC1314251***

It has been in initial review status since day one. Never moved an inch. Sometime I think did they ever receive my file or probably have lost it somewhere as at least it could have moved to RFE to give some sort of light. At this moment it all dark and there is no light at the end if tunnel. Had updated to premium processing 3 months back but even that didn’t make USCIS move it a bit. It remained in a Acceptance status since then and the clock never started.

The employer say that they are waiting for attorney to get back. Attorney has told that they are following up but not sure if they are doing that for sure.

No hopes left. Don’t think they will do all cases of last year before moving to next year which is just 1 month away now.

Thank you.

You can go for stamping anytime during the petition validity period. Whenever you appear for stamping, you should have documents that are current and valid as of that date.

Hi,

After 3 months of wait from status “RFE-RR”, today the status got updated to “DECISION” but my petition is denied. Is there any possibility for Re-Appeal. 8 Months of applying and waiting and finally getting a denial is little hard to digest. Can any one gone through the same experience share what could be the possibilities ahead.

Regards,
SKP

Saurabh January 8, 2014 at 1:32 am

SKP,
Talk to your employer/attorney about the rejection reasons. If you all think that it was in error and you have valid reasons to overturn it, then file the MTR. It needs to be done within 30 days.

Reply

Sam January 8, 2014 at 7:19 am

Mine was same situation in 2009 and get suggested by most of them to apply a fresh case instead of Reopen the same, because 90% it takes more time to get updates on current compare to a fresh one.

After two months again the session starts, so i suggest you to apply a fresh one instead of reopen the same

InfyPerson February 12, 2014 at 1:16 am

Hi SKP,

I got RFE on employee – Employer relationship and i submited my response to USCIS and then i got denial decision on 12th December 2013. Now question was what to do. I Contacted my company and then onsite team has check the denial reason and it was MSA and SOW was not submitted. They have prepared huge draft to support the denial and filled my MTR on 11th of January 2014. On 29th January 2014 they decided to consider my case for reopen since the draft created by onsite team was strong and then on 4th Feb 2014 they approved my petition. So it all depends of denial reason so dont loose hope and just talk to your company to file MTR but it require to file within 30 days of denail notice so if you are still in this time you can go for and if you have crossed 30 days limit then you dont have any option but to refile in this cycle which is already started.

I hope this helps and wish you all the best.

Hi,
I’m terribly worried about my petition for H1b visa. Mine got approved last July 2013 and until now i was not able to go for visa stamping because I don’t have my NOA yet the original copy. And when i check again my status online I was surprised because my status back to acceptance. Stating ;On December 12, 2013, a duplicate notice was mailed to you regarding a decision on this case, or describing how we will process the case if it is still pending. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your case is at our VERMONT SERVICE CENTER location.

Hi Saurabh,

My case got denied last month due to client letter.

My employer said that they will appeal.

In denial notice they mentioned that we have appeal with in 30 days. And I am left with only a week for them to appeal. Not sure if they will appeal

So what will be the status once my employer appeal. Will it move to initial review?

Thanks,
Clear

Reply

InfyPerson February 12, 2014 at 1:22 am

if they will appeal then USCIS will decide to reconsider your case or not based on supporting documents provided by your company. I was in same boat my petition got denied on 12th of December and we filed MTR on 11th January 2014. Since we submit proper proof to justify denial reason they reopend my case with same file number so i got update from USCIS site since i register myself for email update that my case is reopend on 29th January 2014 and on 4th Feb 2014 i got approval. so you can understand it all depneds on supporting documents. if you are from well known company and if they are saying that they will appeal then they will appeal for sure since i was also not knowing that they will appeal or not but they appealed. My last date for appeal was 12th jaunary 2014 and till 10th January 2014 i have been told that they are reviewing my case for MTR so i was not having any hope that they will reopen since 1 day left but they did everything in 1 day and i got approval finally. So dont loose hope thats what i can say…

Wish you all the best.

Hi,

I have changed my organization, after receiving new H1B petition receipt no, I started working for a new employer B( in CA) from old employer A(in IL). My visa status is RFE from employer B.

My dependent is traveling to US to SFO airport CA on my employer A visa valid up to June 2015, is it any problem of traveling at this time since my new visa status is RFE. and dependents are traveling to SFO airport instead of Chicago, any problem while immigration check at airport?

What are the documents needs to be carried while traveling H4B visa?

H1B Rejected December 24, 2013 at 6:12 am

Hi All,

One thing i would like to say is dont get penic.. I also get rejection of my H1B. Its all about luck and time… If you are keen to go US then there is always chance to reapply for next year quota. you just have to convence your employer to refile for you which is bit tedious task if i know but dont disappoint its not end. you can keep trying yes now if you want to apply then you have to wait for again 1 year and then if everything works well then you will be in US. so just think about moving on and ask your employer to go for refiling in 2014 and forget what has happened.
I can say its never end of your dremas till time you are alive. believe me this is nothing i have seen many set backs but that makes you fighter and you will come with bang. Think alwyas positive and it will work for you.

Keep you hope alive and think about 2014 forget about what has happened for your this year H1b. I wish all of you all the best who got denial and keen to go to US.

God bless you all.

Hi Saurabh / Guys/

Below may be a repeat question for some of you but nevertheless if anybody can point out the answer ?

If I am under RFE can i change my employers and transfer h1b to new employer?

Reply

WhatsInAName November 22, 2013 at 11:40 pm

If you are still under RFE, technically means you do not have an H1B yet. So there is no question of transfer. If your current employer is the one who has sponsored you H1B, then after getting to know your plans to change the job, he/she may withdraw the H1B petition. If your H1B sponsor is not your current employer, then still you may want to wait till the petition is approved to apply for transfer from the new employer.

Reply

Siddharth November 23, 2013 at 2:11 am

so “WhatsInANam”
can i transfer /edit my application after lottery
FYI: My application is still under initial review.
so the question is : can i transfer / edit my application to a new employer who is much more better and hence lower chances of RFE ?

Reply

WhatsInAName November 25, 2013 at 10:23 am

No.. You can only do that after your petition is approved with a copy of approval notice submitted with a cap exempt petition(known as transfer) from the new employer..

Stamping December 20, 2013 at 11:50 am

Hi

My H1 got approved on Nov5th. I need to go for stamping in India.
My employer in US filed 2 H1s. He gave us a Vendor letter from a Vendor.
The other guy went for stamping in HYD and got rejected. When I ask my employer about my stamping he is saying “Do not go for stamping with that vendor, as we have one rejection case in the Data base your Visa also will be rejected for sure. He is asking me to wait until we get a new Vendor, then only we’ll have chances for approval.

Is it true that if there is a rejection, the next one also will be rejected. He is saying the vendor is not supporting us. Can I transfer my H1 to some other employer at this point??
I have 4 years exp in ERP and the market for the ERP that I am working is good in US. How to get an employer in US who can transfer my H1. Please suggest…

Thanks

@approval to stamping,
It depends. Usually, it takes a month or so unless USCIS screws up your I797 approval document. In my case, date of birth went wrong in the approval form. Raised a service request. Waiting for amended H1 now. In cases like mine, it may take more than 2 months.

Hi Experts,

My given name in passport exceeds the total size given for given name in DS160. Can you please guide what to do. My ds160 is not submitted for this reason and my stamping getting delayed.

Dear all/Sourabh,

I have been patient for the H1B since April and this forum has been my daily routine along with my work! Its happy to know that I am finally able to share the following experience just like others :

Q1 : Which company you are working for?
Q2 : You are working for your company’s internal project or client?
Q3 : Who is your client?
Q4 : What is your US salary?
Q5: What are your roles and responsibilities in the US?

Be confident, just talk to the VO like you talk to ur buddy. Even I was very panicked but later realized its all a formality as already we have gone thro lots of hurdles like lottery , RFE, RFERR etc.

All the very best to you all who are waiting! You l definitely get ur visa stamped soon:)

Hi,

I have applied for H1B in EVC model from India. Vendor gave me the letter saying that I am working for them in client place. I dnt have a client letter or any communication from End client saying that I am working for them. Before they approve my H1 they gave my RFE for employer and Vendor Relationship. I am going for stamping next week in India. What are the possibilities for getting Visa and is there any chance to put my case in administrative process or they will approve or reject directly without administrative process as they already gave me RFE.
Is there anybody who got approval with same case?? What would be the best answer when they ask for client letter??

Which consulate would be better to go for stamping in India?? Heard that in Hyderabad number of rejections are more, Chennai or Kolkata which would be better. Plz suggest
Thanks in advance.

Hi I I applied cos h4 to h1 thru a consultancy in US. And I got my papers soon after approval. Unless you are on another status, I I don’t see why a client letter comes in picture..he has to give you the documents. .

Hi,

How many days it took for your employer to receive your documents.
It has been 4 days for me and my employer is yet to receive my documents.

Your employer could keep a copy and give you the originals. From my knowledge i don’t think he needs to wait for the client letter in order to give you your documents. After approval a submission of client letter is not needed. If USCIS needed it they would have requested for it previously. Maybe you should take advise from somebody else as well on this.
