In a follow up to my recent post on H-1B visa petitions, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services conducted the random selection process on April 14, 2008 and announced that it will issue receipt notices for selected petitions by June 2, 2008. The notice also indicated that the total processing time would be eight to 10 weeks but did not indicate whether the clock would begin from April 14 or from the date of the receipt notice. For premium processing cases ($1,000 extra filing fee for 15-day processing), the 15-day clock began on April 14.
