USCIS London I-130, 3 weeks no NOA1 no charge

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have mailed the I-130 (and all the required documents, signed etc.) to the USCIS in London over 3 weeks ago, yet we have not received a NOA1 or a charge on my credit card. We also have no way of tracking the overnight package for the form that we sent.

 

Is this normal? Should I email the USCIS? I'm getting nervous at this point because we cannot move forward with our future plans until at least we get this NOA1.

 

Thank you!

According to official USCIS sources, that is still within the processing time for London:

Yes, this is the total processing time.

 

What I asked was is it normal to not receive a NOA1 after 3 weeks? The NOA1 is a notice that the USCIS has RECIEVED our package. It is not the result. It was my understanding that you recieve the NOA1 as soon as they recieve your package.

Another London filer here, we initially missed a digit from the credit card number form and it took them a while to send back the petition asking for a valid payment method (send early January, received back around a week later). 

 

However when I responded, they were very quick to take payment and send an NOA1 Email (around 3 days).

 

Whilst they seem a bit behind judging by the processing date on the embassy website jumping around/not being updated, 3 weeks definitely sounds like a lot so I would go ahead and contact them through the contact info on the embassy website.

Thanks for your helpful response!

 

I have contacted them and they responded that they returned our package for corrections. Not sure what we need to correct, but anxiously waiting for it in the mail now. 

 

It took us over 1 month to compile everything and make sure every thing was perfect.. This process really is a killer. Here's to hoping everything works out soon!
