Recommended Posts

I was scheduled for an appointment in Jan of 2012. I was not in the country when they sent me the letter. I then after sent them all the required documentation of where I was and showed that I was not in the country and I could not make it. I sent all the boarding passes and such. They said they were gonna contact me by mail. I use the facilty in holtville, Long Island. Does anyone know hoe long I would have to wait to get another interview date??

When did you contact them? Which office did you contact them at? Normally rescheduling interview can take few weeks.

well they said it was a failure to appear. I contacted the USCIS general number. But my local office is Holtville, Long island.

Did they close your case because of your failure to appear? If they did, you need to start the whole N-400 process all over again.

No they have not closed my case, they said that they are waiting for an available appointment... do you know how long that takes?

It doesn't matter that you were out of the country. You should have had someone checking your mail. It is likely you received a denial letter for failure to appear.. correct? And you're filing an appeal based on being out of the country. it is likely they will make you refile unless you can show that leaving the country was an emergency... but even then you could have had someone checking your mail.
