I received a case transfer notice to MSC recently. Notice states clearly that tranfer was made to schedule an interview. Is this written in all case transfer notices? 

 

What do they typically write the reason of transfer in the notice?

 

Here is my timeline:

 

Applied 2/2018 ROC in CSC

Received RFE 3/2019

Submitted evidence 5/16/2019

Received notice of transferring case to Missouri National Benefit centre at 5/29/2019

Notice says transferring case is to conduct an interview.

If an ROC case is transferred to NBC (MSC) then yes, it will say that it was transferred there for an interview. NBC is the service center that prepares cases for interviews, so that would be the reason for ROC cases being transferred there. 

 

You had an RFE and whatever you sent clearly wasn't enough for the CA service center to make a decision, so now you will have an interview.

 

If it was transferred to another Service center (other than NBC), it could be to "even out the workload" etc.

Scandi,

Thanks for the response.

 

Missleman,

Thats solid professional and organised effort! I will  definitely add my info. I , however, notice that most cases in that spreadsheet are freshly applied. It seem like I am the only one who was transferred to MSC after RFE from another service center.

I think one or two others were also transfers.  But you are correct that most of them were initially assigned to MSC.  To my knowledge, there just isn't any reliable info about processing times at MSC, thus we hope the spreadsheet will, over time, yield some useful data......Thanks for adding to the knowledge base....

NBC doesn't really process any ROC cases, they just prepare them for interviews (because of the this, most NBC cases will receive RFEs or the "ready to be scheduled for an interview" status early on). So processing times for NBC doesn't even exist, that's also why you won't find any such info on USCIS website. It's all about the different field offices. NBC only holds on to the cases until the field offices are ready to take them on. If you're with a fast field office, then your case will soon be sent there and you will have your interview. If it's a slow office, you could wait for 1-2 years unfortunately.

where do you guys find out that NBC is the place that prepares interviews?

 

does that mean other field offices dont?ie lin or Vermont offices...

"The NBC’s primary mission is to prepare applications for adjudication that require an interview at a USCIS Field Office."

 

and.. 

 

"Processing times of the Form I-485 and Form N-400 applications are determined by each Field Office, not the NBC, since final adjudication is not conducted at the NBC.  " (same for i-751 nowadays, processing times for those who end up at NBC is depending on their local field office, not NBC).
