My employer says they submitted an H1B registration for me online, but they said they were not issued a receipt. Is this accurate?


There is no receipt issued by the USCIS after an H1B registration is submitted. The closest thing to a receipt is an online confirmation message, which includes a registration number. But this is not the same thing as a traditional I-797 receipt notice. (13.Mar.2024)
