My Employer also filed on H1 Amendment on June 16, 2015. Still Waiting. Please let me know if any one gets approval for H1 Amendment. The sad part is we do not have any official link to track H1 Amendment Status. All we need to do is wait. PP is not required if it is not urgent for you. Its up to you.

Hi,

My employer gave me H1 amendment receipt no. I think you can track it online under case status.

Yes, I too have it and my status is "Case was Received". I was saying about USCIS Processing time where we can see dates for H1 change of status/extension...etc., For amendment we don't have some thing like that.

Same here. I guess we need to wait at least 1 more month. If you get your approval first response to this post. If I get, I will do the same. Thanks!

Hi,
Do you valid visa stamped in your passport? If yes, you can go out of country and come back with stamped visa.
Else you need get stamped in india once your amendment is approved and come back to US.

Hi All,

H1B Amendment was filed on 19-May-2015 and it got approved on 15-Oct-2015.
This time it takes longer than usual.
Hope you will get it approved soon.

My case was received by USCIS on May 28th. Still no updates. My attorney said that they are processing May cases currently. As someone's case filed on 15th had already had a response (from the above post), I am hoping for a response in a week or two. June or July cases may take time even more time I guess.

Hi Madhukar,

What is your RFE about? Did you hire any attorney? if so who is the attorney. Need some help man.

Thanks,

Hi Guys,

My employer have applied my H1B extension in March 2015 and within 1 month I got it approved . Now I have changed the project in different location , they have applied for H1B Amendment on July 24 , 2015 , Already I sent my Family to india, I have plans to go to india by 2nd week of Jan.

Any Idea how long I have to wait before cancelling my tickets ? Moreover my son is US citizen ( 6 months old) his Indian tourist visa is getting over by Feb 23rd , Anyone know if we can apply for a tourist visa extension in India ?

Thanks
Rajesh
