## Case Was Received

On May 02, 2019, we received your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WAC1918750153, and sent you the receipt notice that describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your receipt notice by June 01, 2019, contact the USCIS Contact Center at ,…

Current as of today at 11:39 a.m.

The H1B communication is sent directly to employer or attorney and not to you. You are fine as your employer would have received it and that’s how they know the receipt number and shared it with you.

I do not think your case is filed in premium as you have not yet received the result. Premium cases get approval within 15 days of receipt date.

Thanks For comment Anil ,

But as I check in my I797C amount is 2460 USD.

Premium application and fees is filed on a separate form i907 and a separate check is check which $1410 at this time.

Hi @Shashank_Mishra

You can expect your H1B approval by Oct 2019 first week end.

Hi @Anil.Gupta
Thanks for your contribution. Its would really helpful if you can answer my question
Our employer told us he is going for premium processing due to delay in processing.
But how we can know when he opted for premium processing or they are just lieing to us.

Hi @Shashank_Mishra

Usually, the USCIS online case status would say that premium processing clock started when they have received the request.

Thanks Anil

But How we can check this as i am getting validation error on USCIS while checking status.

@Anil Gupta

On September 16, 2019, your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WAC1918*******, was transferred to another USCIS office. That office now has jurisdiction over your case. We sent you a notice that explains why we moved your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your notice by October 16, 2019, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

Can you please explain regarding this

Hi @Shashank_Mishra

This simply means that your case has been transferred to another USCIS service center. Nothing else.

No worries its normal .
