Potomac Service Center Delivery

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I received the "request for initial evidence". I put the document they wanted in a envelope and sent it to the Potomac Service Center as the letter states.  I put the exact address as shown on the letter, 2200 Potomac Center Drive, Stop 2425. Arlington, VA 20598-2425. I went to the post office to ship it off and I made sure i got a tracking number so that i can monitor it once it is received.  I went to the USPS website to check the status and it says "Delivered". Which means the delivery has reached the final destination.. But it also says: "Delivered to Agent, Delivered to Agent for Final Delivery DHS VA 20598."

 

I am a bit confused. Why does it say  DHS VA 20598? I thought it is suppose to go to the USCIS Potamac Service Center as i have written on the envelope. I am going to call uscis to ask if they received it, but i am just curious about why the USPS tracking website says  "Delivered to Agent, Delivered to Agent for Final Delivery DHS VA 20598."

 

PS: My status on my receipt # on uscis still says "request for initial evidence mailed". So uscis did not yet update anything on their end because i sent just them the letter back and it was delivered to them today.

Not necessarily, whatever reason USPS has for displaying it that way, it's not relevant to your submission.  The only thing that is relevant is that your submission was received.

USCIS is part of DHS

Which is why the check is made out to Department of Homeland Security.  

 

So, relax.  Your submission has been properly delivered.

Hi, did your status change to show as received by them? 

I sent the response to an RFE on Nov 01, delivered on the next day and got the same message as you. USCIS didn’t update my status as of today.

It was a marriage certificate in the original language which was already provided in the original envelope. I was told USCIS does this a lot. 

 

I sent the evidence evidence on October 24 and the status on USCIS page has not yet changed to received!

I am worried if i should send it again. 

 

I sent it to the Potomac service center in VA (2200 Potomac Center Drive, Stop 2425. Arlington, VA 20598-2425. )

Look what it says when the letter was delivered. It says delivered to DHS. What is this? Please see attachment of the delivery on the USPS website.

You mean they received the evidence on Oct 24 according to USPS tracking? I would call them before sending again.

Yes according to USPS tracking. Look at the last few posts i included a picture of it. 

 

I called USCIS they told me they receive over thousands of letters a day and i need to be patient. I called them 2 weeks ago. Should i call them again?
