Alien Number Assigned 4 days after getting NOA1

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

OK, we got the NOA 1 in the mail on Monday, and this friday our case was updated to "On May 17, 2013, your Alien Registration Number was changed relating to your I129F,

".

What does it mean? Is there still such a glitch going on their website or something?

Well, our case is the the beneficiary is still currently in the U.S. She's been here 4 and a half years already on F1 visa. But she is going home like in couple of days. Wonder if this has anything to do with it.

best
