NOA2 undeliverable by post office.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need your help or advice regarding my situation. I left my home state and will be gone for two months and had my mail forwarded to another state for the time being. I received my text and email approval for the I-129f on June 18th. On June 24th, I received an email stating that the post office returned my document(noa2) to USCIS.

I was wondering if anyone has any information regarding this situation? I called USCIS to let them know of my situation, and they told me that they do not forward mail, which is why it was returned. They said they put in a service request, but the girl I spoke with just requested it to be sent to the same permanent address. I cancelled my mail to be forwarded to prevent any problems. Does anyone know if this affects when I can get the case number from NVC? Is there any way to track the service request? My main concern is if this undeliverable mail causes a delay in USCIS forwarding my case to NCV.

I really hope someone could help me out!

Thank you!

all uscis offical postal mail

is never forwarded by any usps forwarding order.

sorry.

you can ask for it to be remailed with USCIS and that's it.

if i were in your shoes, i would have had a 30 day HOLD order in place, instead. USPS would have held it, awaiting your face at the counter.

re: case # at NVC - that's easy - you call, use a telephone, into NVC, give over the USCIS receipt # and some biodata, and a human gives you the Consular Casefile Number over the telephone.

Going forward, you might want to find one of Hank_ 's posts, when yer on a PC with 'view signatures' enabled, then click on his link in his sig area. He's got the Handy-Dandy, Neeto-Keen (Yet Spiffy) Guide to SuperFast K-1 Visa Chasing for Manila IV linked there. [don't attempt with a handphone, it's a waste of time]

Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

No it does not affect when you can get your MNL# from NVC, you only need to call/email (or wait for the letter) NVC with the required information to get your MNL # once they have processed your case file.

You WILL need the NOA2 later for Adjustment of Status.

Thank you so much for your help, @Darnell and @Hank_

The notice said that if I don't call them within 180 days, I will need to file a new I-129f, so I thought it may have affected our application. I was told a service request was done.. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for that to go through?

@Darnell, I should have had my mail held.. I wasn't aware that USCIS never forwards mail :( Lesson learned.

I really appreciate your help! Thank you!
