15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. As i stated before i had hard time finding an atty to process my papers but i got lucky and found one. We mailed the papers with the evidence and after 2 weeks received my NOA1 saying that i am extended for one year and needs to wait for biometrics. But, today i got a letter I-797 Notice of Action under the case type it says "CRI89 APPROVED REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS (I89) and underneath of Notice type: It says "Receipt Notice". What does it mean? Please let me know if anybody get a mail like this.. It's confusing for me. Thanks

That's very interesting. Go on the USCIS website and sign up for texts and emails to see if you get an email/text in a few days saying that your card production has been order (you would if it actually has been approved). You can also pretty much just call USCIS for verification....I guess that would be faster.

Anyways, I definitely wish you the best, and hope you have actually been approved.

It sounds like good news to me, but the timing seems very unusual. CSC has processed some applications within 2 months, but within 2 weeks has never been seen.

Was your application to CSC? Also, what month is your NOA?

That's why im asking here because it's like few days apart after i got the NOA1. But, I do hope so that it's really approved..

As I stated in the "March 2012 Filers" thread, the same thing happened to my wife's application today.

We filed on 3/8/12 to VSC, got NOA1 few days after with a EAC case number that is not traceable online.

Today, what I thought was a biometrics appt, turned out to be the same exact document as you got with "CRI89 APPROVED REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS (I89)" in the case type, but "Receipt Notice" as a notice type. New EAC number (which is different from NOA1) is now traceable and in "Initial Review" phase.

Also, the form type in "My Portfolio" (USCIS online) is not I-751, but CRI89.

Don't know what to make of it...

I received the same form as mentioned here, the two page Notice of Receipt with "CRI89 APPROVED REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS (I89)". I did not think that this meant that that the case has been approved. People have been waiting for >6 months and it is too much to expect our cases to be approved within weeks. There is nothing that different about us. Plus the notice clearly states that it does not mean the case has been adjudicated.

Following this chain of thought I did a search and found this page on USCIS' site:

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=201bac3a8595a110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD&vgnextchannel=68439c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

The page states that USCIS will change language in notices that state what we got. From the page, "The current transfer notice currently contains the following phrase: “CRI89 approved removal of conditions (I89).” That statement means that the biometric portion of the case has been successfully transferred; it does not, however, mean that the petition itself was approved."

The kicker is that this page is from 2008. Maybe its not a surprise.

So the wait continues. Sorry to crush the expectations.

I have received the same thing today!

However, if you read the paper carefully, it says clearly "this doesn't give you any immigration benefits". Also, it tells you that you will receive the biometrics soon. Anyway, no case will be approved without biometrics!

It means they have received your petition "TO REMOVE OF CONDITIONS OF PERMANENT RESIDENCY (CR 189)". It is an acknowledgement receipt.

ROC form is called I-751 but actual ROC process is known as CR189. Sometimes USCIS makes mistakes they send repeated receipts or occasionally none.

I have personally never heard Approval without Bio. Good Luck on your Journey.

Well at least you are getting notifications. I had to call the USCIS because we never got the biometric appt letter. Even then you have to wait exactly 30 days from the date of the NOA saying they had received the I-751 and cashed the check.

After getting in touch with them for the lack of biometric letter, we got it in the mail 3 days later. It's dated for the day before we called, of course!:innocent:
