Hey all! So on May 20th, Vermont Center received our O-1B yearly extension that my sponsor sent. It has been over a week since and we haven’t received any receipt notice as of yet.


Mu current status expires on May 31st and it’s really close. Normally, with past petitions, we’ve received all notices within 5 days of the day they’ve received it. Can it be longer because of the COVID situation?


Also, at what stage of the adjudication does USCIS perform its background checks? Before issuing the receipt notice or after?
