USCIS ALERT: Workload Transfer from Vermont Service Center to California Service Center
On Monday, December 23rd, USCIS issued a notification that it has begun transferring some casework from the Vermont Service Center (VSC) to the California Service Center (CSC) to balance workloads. Affected casework includes H-1B extension of stay petitions.
If a case has been transferred, USCIS will send a notice listing the transfer date and where the case will be processed. Please allow 21 days from the date of transfer for the CSC to issue a decision. The original receipt number issued by VSC will not change, nor will the transfer delay the processing of the case.
To check the status of a pending case, please visit www.uscis.gove and enter your receipt number in the “Check Status” field. You may also sign up to receive automatic case status updates by email.
