How long before acknowledgment text/e-mail?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed my N-400 along with a G-1145 to authorize them to e-mail/text me that my application was received. According to USPS tracking my package got there yesterday morning, but there is no text/e-mail from USCIS themselves. Do they take a few days to send it out? (Note: I am not talking about the official Receipt Notice that they mail out, but the text/e-mail that they are supposed to send out when one fills out the G-1145.)

They have to actually process your package for receipt. Just receiving it in the mail room is one thing, someone else likely opens it and scans it. Then someone else probably enters your information in to the system. At that time is when they send out the receipt notice email/text.

Thanks so much for the insight! Yes, USPS delivered it last Wednesday and they still haven't sent me a text as of today (Monday). I hope they will process it soon :-)

The acknowledgement e-mail finally arrived around 10:30 PM last (Monday) night!

Right, and when I enter the NBC number they gave me on the USCIS case status website, it says they received it July 2nd (just three days after I mailed it).

Phew :-)

What is G-1145? Did you both send at the same time N-400 and G-1145? Thanks

G-1145 is a form you send if you want to get text and email notification of the initial acceptance of your application.

It is only good for that initial notification.

If you want text and email updates of all your future application status changes, then you'll need to set up a tracking account on the USCIS website. For this you'll need your case number which you'll get with your first electronic notification (if you filed the G-1145) or on your NOA letter in the mail.

If you want to, you should include the G-1145 with your N400 application. It is available on the same USCIS page as the N400.
