Congratulations

OP - Was yours a first time H-1B petition? Do you mind sharing your receipt number? You can mask the last 3 digits if you want. Example: WAC1814152xxx. I’m in a similar situation. My H-1B petition was filed in April 2018, got RFE in July, sent RFE response in Aug. I haven’t heard back since then. I’m asking for receipt number to assess the timeframe. Thanks.

D1 - PP was suspended for all first time H-1B petitions in April 2018. It is still suspended until Feb 2019.

Congrats! Is your H1b valid for three years from date of approval or from Oct 1?

Thank you! It was the California processing center. RFE filed on 12/6 and got approved 12/21

Wow, congratulations! Was this under premium processing?

OP - Can you provide your masked receipt number for reference? I would like to check the timeframe for my case. Please see my previous comment Thanks.
