Delays in H-1B Receipt Notices Reported at Vermont Service Center

Last Updated on February 23, 2023

The Vermont Service Center (VSC) is experiencing delays in issuing receipt notices for H-1B petitions filed with this USCIS regional center.  

The delays were announced by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) in a Practice Alert on May 24, 2022.  Specifically, certain petitions that were filed in April 2022 have not yet generated a receipt notice.  

Typically, receipt notices for H-1B petitions filed under regular processing are sent to the attorney and the petitioning company by regular U.S. postal mail and may take up to 4 weeks to receive. Generally, receipt notices for H-1B petitions filed by premium processing service will be sent both electronically in an email alert and by regular U.S. postal mail to the attorney and petitioning company.
