 USA Visa and H1B Processing Times - California Service Center  
 
Check and Track the Latest H1B Processing Time For Visa Applications Filed with the USCIS

Below is the H1B Visa Processing Times for the California Processing Service Center


Vermont Service Center - Visa Processing Times

Texas Service Center - Visa Processing Times

Nebraska Service Center - Visa Processing Times

If the office is processing a particular type of visa application (including H1B processing) in less time than the processing time goal, you will see the latest processing times expressed in months (for example, if the office is processing a visa application in less than a 5 month goal, the processing time will state "Five Months").

However, if that office is taking longer than the visa processing time goal (including H1B processing) to handle the visa form type in question, you will see the filing date (e.g., "April 10, 2003") of the last case that was processed on the date the chart was last updated.
