Talk about H1B filing nightmare. American Immigration Lawyers Association has received reports that Federal Express forwarded a number of H-1B packages to the service centers without entering the individual package into the tracking system. AILA and USCIS are discussing how to handle the situation, and USCIS is talking to Federal Express.USCIS urges filers NOT to submit duplicates of packages that are missing tracking numbers, as that could result in both applications being denied as multiple filings under the new rules.
We sent ALL our cases via FEDEX but we were able to track all of them. Let’s hope this problem will be resolved very soon. We will keep you posted.
