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

In continuation with the previous WAC182005**** 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 ( extension, amendments, consular) cases filed on 05/29/2018 (May 29 2018) – 1211

Here is the latest update with all of the WAC18195**** data. Total H1B cases – 1211. Data shows around 26% overall probability of getting RFE.

Below is the breakup case status as of today.

377 cases are already approved.

Pending cases Split up

695 (186+377+132) cases filed in premium.
516 cases in regular mode.

186 premium cases show a status of pending for action.

If you include the Approved and RFE cases as premium total of 695 cases were filed in premium.


  • More than 50% of cases are being filed in premium.
  • Rate of RFE seems around 26% has increased with the receipt number sequence increasing. Possibly more RFE if is not able to evaluate a case?

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