Has anyone else applied for the Uniting for Ukraine program?

I just went through the process. It's essentially just an I-134 that you can submit online. 

 

Once you submit it you'll get an update a few minutes later telling you to follow the instructions on the notice they sent you. Here's the weird thing, there are no instructions on this notice. 

 

Just wondering if anyone else is in my shoes

We did it on the 25th. Today we received and email that the case was confirmed. We should receive an email with more info. We are waiting for it. At the same time we are calling USCIS to find out why the email is not here yet. We are waiting in line.

Was the notice a receipt? Or a confirmation telling that you can support your beneficiary?

I did it on the 27th and my case status also says it was received and a receipt notice was sent. But there's nothing yet.

Anyone know how long this program should take? I know it's hard to guess I'm just not patient enough haha. I saw something online about 60-120 days, but it didn't look credible.

We filed the 25th. It took us 4 days for the i-134 to be “Approved”. We receive a Notice on our USCIS account telling it was Confirmed. We can support the beneficiaries and to wait for an email with the next steps. Now we are waiting for the e-mail. We just talk to USCIS and they said to wait until Tuesday. If email is not there to call them again. Good luck. Will update with any news.

Hi Islapaz,

 

Do mind sharing which item of evidence you provided? I provided Bank officer statements, Employer Verification of employment and wages, tax transcript and birth certificate. Do you think these item will do the trick?
