@srpankaj12 would appreciate if you could answer following
Was the case showing as transferred under myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov or on USCIS case status ?
How did you find about RFE? Did the online status change?

On both sites status was shown as case transferred on Feb 1st. On USCIS case status site I checked the status updated today, later on I got a notification too. Waiting for RFE to reach to attorney and then to me. On new site (myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov) status did not update.

Thanks for the info. I cant even add my case on the egov.uscis and new site shows as received. Application was filed on 12/28. So no idea if it was transferred.
Did you get details for your RFE?

No details on RFE yet, as it was issued only on March 8th. In the next week hopefully I will get it. Whey are you not able to add case to egov.uscis site?

I do not think so. I am still waiting to hear back from attorney. I am thinking that they would have received it by now. However they have not reached out to me. May be today EOD or tomorrow.

What is your SOC code?
My case was upgraded to premium today and the status changed to RFE in the afternoon. I guess will have to wait for at least a week to get details.
SOC - 15-1132, wage level 4, FTE

Good luck to you too!
So if understand correctly your RFE does not fall under category of proving specialty occupation. Right?
Is your case being handled by Fragomen?
Posted by srpankaj12
16 Mar 2019 #15
No, mine is not Fragoman. It is Envoy. Yes, I do not think it is under category of speciality occupation.

What is the validity date on you visa? In my case the validity start date is back dated to 01/01/2019 (i.e. the day of filing) though it got approved today 06/13/2019 ( after rfe response evaluation).
And it valid upto 12/09/2019 so 342 days, not complete 3 years . Not sure if its tied to LCA validity

@lambda9 yes its tied to LCA
Posted by nutpar
17 Jun 2019 #27
Thanks @h1b_Oct2018. I wrote wrong date above, should be 12/09/2021
So validity is 01/01/2019 - 12/09/2021( 2 years 11 months)
Approved on 06/13/2019
