H1B status: Case Transferred And New Office Has Jurisdiction


(Ronnie) #1

Hello Anil. Hope you are doing good. I tried to google but could not get right perspective as what does " Case Transferred And New Office Has Jurisdiction" and " Case Was Received At My Local Office" means. Any insights into this will really help me alot. Thanks in advance.

The above are the status email I got this morning.


H1B Amendment approval is shorter than base petition's longer validity

It simply means that your case has been transferred from one USCIS service center to another.

You would have received a USPS mail too informing about the transfer.

USCIS regularly transfer cases from one center to other to balance their work load.

Appreciate the response…i started with that assumption and then read couple of “Call for an interview” comments so got confused.

Come what may we have to sail thru this pain…interview at local office or at white house we cannot budge down :slight_smile:…just for the sake of Visa…have a great weekend sir!

Whichever forum you read on, may have, people responding with their own mixed-up cases.
Call for interview is normally a case with i485 applications and not H1B.

People on forums just try to squeeze their own case irrespective of the content of original thread and the whole meaning is lost.

We try to separate the discussions into new thread on TruVisa.com to maintain the context.

very valid point!!! Specially in the times of greater sensitivity…its human nature to get easily influenced…I truly appreciate again for what you guys do here.
