How Long Does It Take to Get an H-1B Visa?

A recent LawTrades user asked: “How long does it take to get an H-1B Receipt from USCIS if the Petition has been filed under Standard Processing?” 

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….
