Re: H-1B Status Contact Information
To comment on this Broadcast Message, please email SEVP@ice.dhs.gov with “Broadcast Message 1504-06 Comment” entered in the subject line.
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program Response Center is currently experiencing an unexpected high call volume and longer than normal wait times related to inquiries about H-1B petitions.
Please advise your students seeking their H-1B status and who have a receipt number to contact the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at 1-800-375-5283. If the student does not have their receipt number, they should contact the employer that filed the original petition.
You can also direct your students to the H-1B status page on Study in the States for additional information.
