NVC Returned Petition to USCIS After NOA2!!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed for my fiance I129F and we received the NOA2 end of January. The notice says it will take 4-6 weeks for the NVC to process it. Surprisingly, a month later, we received 2 letters. One for another NOA2 but with a different date, and an I-797C notice indicating that the USCIS has reaffirmed the previous decision (which is approved) as the Department of State has sent the petition back to the USCIS for some reason. 


I'm wondering if anyone else went through this. Why would the NVC send the petition back to the USCIS? 


Thank you.

USCIS could have made an error on the paperwork and NVC returned it simply to get corrected or maybe something was missing. Reaffirmed by USCIS just means they rechecked everything and sent it back to NVC. Could be several reasons.

When did you receive the two letters? At the end of feb? My case has been sent back to USCIS at the end of Jan as well for some stamp issue but I have not heard anything about it since. I'm hoping my case was in the same pile as yours :(

Not from my own personal experience but I have seen this question so many times and most answers were “USCIS Forgot to apply the stamp.” I hope it’s your case so things can continue to move along! I’m praying for the best for you
