H1B 2021 Sample Receipt, Approvals Notices – Shared by Applicants

In H1B Visa by KumarUpdated : 13 Comments

As many of you know, from this year, which is H1B Visa 2021 season, USCIS started the new H1B Visa Registration process and many are still filing H1B petitions for FY 2021 until June 30th, 2020. Also, USCIS announced earlier the delays in getting receipts notices for FY 2021 until early May. Now, some of our blog readers have applied in April and few have got approval notices as well. Couple of such readers, anonymous and Kiiki, have been kind enough to share their receipt notices and approval notice for everyone’s benefit and positive hope. Thanks a lot, to anonymous user and Kiiki for taking time to share it with the community, we appreciate it. You can share it with community as well by writing to us at [email protected]

    My company submitted LCA around mid-April. But my lawyer said he didn’t still get approval for LCA. So, the lawyer cannot submit any of my and company’s documents. I heard that LCA is usually approved within 2 weeks. Is it delayed for this year? Do you know how long does it take for approval this year?
    Thank you

    I am confused. USCIS asked for a bailout to the government because immigrant applications dropped by 60% due to the current crisis. If they have 40% of the work they had before, shouldn’t they be faster? They stopped Premiuim Processing because they said they had too many applications, but then ask a bailout because they don’t have enough applications. So, which one is it?

      Hi Kumar and Mimi,

      Does this mean the H1B Filing petitions submitted to USCIS for 2021 also got dropped so far some %?. Will this increase the chance for a Second run by June 30th?.

    Congrats to all who got their approval notices. Is it possible to go to Canada to get US H1B visa. I am under the advanced degree cap. Let me know.

    Good Luck

    Is there a pattern how cases are being approved? The USCIS website says petitions will be processed in the order they are received? I don’t understand how some people are getting approvals already !!

      It is hard to say, every case is subject to their own scrutiny…some get adjudicated faster, some take time as there can be RFEs.
      It has always been that way, some get approvals fasters, there is no clear logic or pattern.

    Happy for those who’ve got their long-deserved approvals.
    I have got the RFE a day after a petitioner’s name correction. VSC.
    My employer’s lawyer haven’t seen the RFE yet (case status was updated yesterday) but I think it’s about specialty occupation, because I have a “loser’s combo” of “Marketing Manager” title and and an MBA degree…

      Don’t worry stay positive. As long as the role is genuine and it is classified as speciality occupation, your attorney should help you get it cleared.
