H-1B Approval as H1B1 To Be Corrected

We recently received reports that H1B I-797 Approvals are being Noticed as "H1B1" even though the petition is not an H-1B1 for a citizen of Chile or Singapore. USCIS has confirmed this was a now resolved technical error. USCIS is resending corrected H1B I-797 Approval Notices. Notices reflecting the corrected H-1B designation will be mailed this week. Petitioners should expect 10-14 days for receipt. Should there be further news in this regard. We will keep you posted.
