hi skunny,
can we check the processing times for H1b-extn for Texas?

Hi Deemohan,

Unfortunately no I guess. If you visit https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ and select I-129 it gives only 3 centers in the next dropdown. Texas is not 1 amongst them.

Hi skunny , you mentioned site visit , are you at client location , home office or employers office?
what was the reason of site visit , were you available at the site when someone visited ? what were the things officer asked or confirmed , between jun 6th or now did you get any status change on the uscis site??

Hi DS41909 .... Yes, I am at a client location & I was available at the site. The officer said my application was picked in random. He asked a lot of questions (for about 30 mins or so) pretty much whatever was mentioned in the petition & then he interviewed my manager as well. He asked me for last 2 pay slips & my ID Card along with my license. Unfortunately no response / updates on USCIS site post this visit.

Thanks Skunny.. wish you good luck & hope you get approval soon !.

Regarding the VISIT , ID card was asked from your employer or for the client ? and the manager interview was from your employer or client manager? i am hoping it would be for your reporting manager from employer..
You have note updated your RFE date , so this visit was before RFE or after RFE?

ID card I was not carrying my employer's so gavve the client ID Card. The manager interview was for my reporting manager on the employer side. I did not get any RFE yet so don't have a date :-). Thank you for your kind wishes.
