Ghost Updates? What exactly are they?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am keep seeing updates on my online uscis account (i.e. last updated XX/XX.XX section). But do not see any overall change. 

 

What are those updates for? Is it really something, or it is just a glitch or something like that?

 

Thanks!

From every morning on Monday, USCIS will send an email to me to inform me if a case has any new movement. 

I believe you would probably get those emails too. 

The email will state The last action USICS made into your case on [XX-XX-XXX] , it sometime means someone touches your case, does not mean there is a change.

Thanks for the input.

 

Actually I never had any update on Mondays from USCIS. It was always on random date/time. 

 

So far I received only 1 update email, and it was after my biometrics that was telling me that I am in-line for the interview.
