NOA1 versus Biometric Letter

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What would we do without Visa Journey?

Last Thursday I got a paper in the mail that appears to be the NOA1 for my fiance's adjustment of status application. However, it also included a date for his biometric appointment. Is this the NOA1 or the Biometric letter or have the two been condensed into one document?

Additionally, we also applied for his EAD and AP as well. Should we have received seperate NOA1s for these as well.

As always, THANKS!

I would say that the letter you received is not the NOA1 but the biometrics appointment letter. It should have the receipt number for I-485 and the I-765 on it.

You should expect the three NOA1s very soon (each with their own receipt number, usually they are consecutive). Usually these arrive before the biometrics appointment letter but it appears in this case the appointment letter beat the NOA1s.

Thanks! How strange.
