I am amending my H1b petition and LCA. My employer filed on 5th August. How long will it take? Can I travel with the FedEx receipt number? Will the amendment and LCA change take place simultaneously? Is there any chance of getting RFE

The entire process (for standard processing) can take between 2 to 6 months – depending on how busy USCIS is and whether they require additional information from you. USCIS reports on their website that the average is about 2 months.

Under standard processing, you’re looking at approximately 1-2 weeks before your new employer gets the receipt.

I wouldn’t recommend traveling in reliance solely on the receipt.

Here’s a link to the USCIS site that allows you to check your status using your receipt number: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatu….
