  • News: USCIS Alert: Workload Transfer from the Vermont Service Center to the Nebraska Service Center

    Workload Transfer from the Vermont Service Center to the Nebraska Service Center

    USCIS recently began transferring certain casework from the Vermont Service Center (VSC) to the Nebraska Service Center (NSC) to balance workloads and decrease processing times. The NSC will now process some:

    • Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, for petitioners requesting H-1B nonimmigrant classification;
    • Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, for the H-4 nonimmigrant classification; and
    • Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, for H-4 nonimmigrants applying for employment authorization.

    How You Will Be Affected If We Transfer Your Case

    If we transfer your case, we will send you a transfer notice. Your receipt number will not change, and the transfer will not delay the processing of your case. Please allow two weeks from the date of this notice before referring to the webpage for NSC processing times for your respective petition or application. Information regarding processing times can be found on the USCIS Processing Time Information page. If you do not receive a decision or notice by the dates provided in the processing times (once posted), you may contact the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) for a status update of the Form I-129 (if you are the I-129 petitioner or authorized representative) or the Form I-539 and/or I-765 (if you are the I-539/I-765 applicant or authorized representative). 

     The filing location and instructions for these forms have not changed. Please continue to file the forms at the address on the form instructions and on the USCIS website.

    If you want to upgrade your I-129 petition to premium processing, you must file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, along with the appropriate fee. Send your form to:

    USCIS Nebraska Service Center
    P.O. Box 87129
    Lincoln, NE 68501-7129

    For more information on requests for premium processing services, please visit our Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service page.

    How to Track the Status of Your Case

    Check your case status online by entering your receipt number. You can also sign up to receive automatic case status updates by email.

    If you do not receive a decision on your case within the published processing time, you may submit an inquiry using e-Request or call the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 800-375-5283 (TTY 800-767-1833). When asking about your case status, please provide us with your receipt number and specify that your case was transferred to a new location.

    If we send you any notice (such as a Request for Evidence), please read it carefully and follow the instructions provided when responding.

    If you move while your case is pending, you must inform us of your address change. You may file a change of address on our website or by calling the NCSC. It is important that you notify us of any address change as soon as possible, so that you continue to receive our notifications.

    • News: Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen
      ImmigrationDaily
      Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen Versión en español WASHINGTON — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Yemen’s designation who want to maintain their status through the extension date of March 3, 2020, must re-register between August 14, 2018, and October 15, 2018. Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization documents (EADs), have been published in the Federal Register and on uscis.gov/tps . All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Applicants may also request an EAD by submitting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, at the time they file Form I-821, or separately at a later date. Like all USCIS forms, both forms are free for download from the USCIS website at uscis.gov/tps . USCIS will issue new EADs with a March 3, 2020, expiration date to eligible Yemen TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, however, we recognize that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on Sept. 3, 2018. Accordingly, we have automatically extended the validity of EADs for 180 days, through March 2, 2019. ...
