Raise USCIS Case Service Request - Outside Normal Processing Time

If your ‘case received date’ is before the date mentioned above, you should raise a service request with USCIS to check why your case has been delayed.
This certainly means that your case is taking longer than other similar cases and may be stuck in administrative processing.

USCIS Case pending and 240 day limit approaching after i94 expiry?

If you case is pending for result with USCIS and your 240 days after i94 expiry are fast approaching, we strongly recommend to upgrade your application to ‘Premium Processing’ at 200 day mark.

This will help you get a result before your 240 day limit and avoid stopping work and leave US.

Premium Processing

Premium processing is available for H1B extension cases and its processing time is 15 calendar days.


We will update these processing times regularly.
