  • For Those With Pending Name Check # to call!!!!

    Hi Guys,
    Those who want to know the status of their name check request should call the following #202-324-2399
    for the fingerprints status, here is the number 304-625-5590.
    This is how I got to know that BCIS never submitted a name check request on my behalf to the FBI...and I was there waiting for my background check clearance.

    Hope it helps!

          For those of you waiting for Name/Security checks for AOS.

          Cite as "Posted on AILA InfoNet at Doc. No. 03091740 (Sep. 17, 2003) ."



          Background on security checks: USCIS advises that, for most of the DV cases, there are three checks (other than IBIS) that must be completed: a fingerprint check with FBI (which looks for arrests and convictions), a name check with FBI (which looks for whether the person is or has been under investigation), and a name check with the CIA (which looks for "adverse information").

          The fingerprint checks with FBI are generally not a problem. According to USCIS, these are usually completed within 48 hours.

          The FBI name checks, however, can be a problem for all types of adjustment cases. In these checks, the USCIS sends a tape containing the names, dates of birth, and countries of birth of adjustment applicants. In December 2002, USCIS sent 3.2 million names to the FBI for clearance. Of those, about 60,000 are still pending. In addition, USCIS sends a tape to FBI once a week with new names. Of these, some 80% are usually cleared within 72 hours. The remaining 20% go into a triage process. If the information regarding name, DOB and/or COB is far afield of that information regarding the individual identified in the "hit", the clearance will usually be sent back to USCIS the next week. If these factors are closer to the "hit" information, the physical file will have to be retrieved from wherever it is (storage, FBI field office, etc.) and inspected. This is where the lengthy delays tend to occur.

          The CIA name checks also present a problem, mostly because the information received as a result of these checks tends to be less than definitive, and the impact on the immigration application therefore unclear. CIA generally responds to name check requests within 60 days, and has agreed to expedite up to 500 per week (but has been known to expedite more).

            I was just told that an e-mail address is also available to inquire about the FBI name check.

            fbinncp@ic.fbi.gov

            provide the Name, Date of birth, Alien number, Country of origin and email address of the Applicant.
