  • H1 processing times--What happened in Vermont?


    Looking at the processing times posted by USCIS for the different centers---
    and looks like that the processing times for the Vermont Center is way
    behind. I guess this may be coz of a surge in H1 applications for the
    regions covered by this center, but, does the USCIS transfer
    applications between the centers to balance out the processing times.

    I guess USCIS being a tax payers institution should somewhat provide
    equal services to all employers fairly. Looks like the employers in
    the regions serviced by the Vermont center aren't paying much taxes
    to deserve timely services like their colleagues in other parts of
    the country.

    What you take on this Ingo, et al.

    Ok occasion, they do. Right now, it really doesn't matter (or so USCIS
    thinks - this is actually not true) because H-1Bs won't be available
    until October 1 anyway, and if you urgently need yours, you can always
    use Premium Processing.

    The thinking isn't necessarily true because slower processing may mean a
    greater risk that cases will be hit by the quota backlog (depending on
    how they implement it).

    USCIS does on occasion transfer applications between centers, and even
    to local offices, but I doubt that they would do it in this case.

    In theory, they should. As a matter of fact, that is the very reason the
    service centers were created in the first place - it used to be that all
    types of application were processed at local offices, with wildly
    varying processing times. Now we have only four different processing
    times, so in that respect things did improve a bit.
