Unfortunately no. USCIS determines which service center any petition will be filed. For H-1B’s it’s typically based on the headquarters of the petitioner/employer. Once the petition is filed and based on the workload of the service centers, the petition can be transferred from one service center to the other to even out the work load of the service centers.

Thank you for the info. So, workload balancing is the reason.

I see a few people mention their new employer is located in New York, but their H-1B transfer petition is filed to Nebraska Service Center. I see a lot of transfer approvals happening in Nebraska Service Center. So, wanted to know if we can chose where to send the transfer petition.

A simple google would give you the USCIS instructions

A1 - Thanks for wasting my time and not adding any value in your responses.

OP - I think we may have chatted in a previous thread. Check out the USCIS website and there is a resource which has processing centers aligned to company locations. NY Headquartered companies can send their apps to Nebraska. My current and future employer have done the same. Both located in NY
