H1B 2018 – Approval and RFE breakup for WAC181915 – May 29 2018 cases

In continuation with the previous WAC182005**** analysis we are publishing the data for WAC181915**** , most of these cases were filed on May 29, 2018 and hence crossed the 15 calendar day deadline for Premium processing and should give a good idea of Approval and RFE rates in the initial days.

Please leave a comment if you want data analysed for a different date (include the first 9 digits of your petition number).

Total number of I-129 (H1B extension, amendments, consular) cases filed on 05/29/2018 (May 29 2018) – 613 (partial data)

Below is the breakup case status as of today.

183 cases are already approved.
366  show the receipt is sent.
64 cases they have RFE issued.

Pending cases Split up

313 (66+183+64) cases filed in premium.
300 cases in regular.

If you include the Approved and RFE cases as premium total of 313 cases were filed in premium.

Inferences

  • More than 50% of cases are being filed in premium.
  • Rate of RFE seems around 25% it has increased with the receipt number sequence increasing. Possibly more RFE if USCIS is not able to evaluate a case?

Keep watching this space, I will post regular updates as I see them.

Analysis of H1B cases filed on June 13 ,14 2018 – WAC182005*** Series

We analysed several thousand petition numbers to identify around 1285 petitions filed on USCIS work day 200 for Fiscal Year 2017-18. All the cases analysed start with WAC182005**** series.

Most of these cases have filed date of June 13 2018 or June 14 2018. Even though it is less than 1 week from filing we have seen quite a bit of action in these cases. It also demonstrates the volume being handled by California Center. Also note that we have not included I-539 (H4), Green card, I-140 or any other petition type in the below numbers.

This data is accurate as of 06/20/2018 but I will keep updating the stats on a daily basis, to give an idea to prospective H1B holders.

Inferences

  • More than 50% of cases are being filed in premium.
  • Also the Rate of RFE is much lower than what we have seen in the recent past. This might change as we near 15 day premium processing deadline.

Keep watching this space, I will post regular updates as I see them.
