After an applicant submits their Form I-601A and the accompanying filing fee, the process progresses through several steps. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides notifications and facilitates further requirements for the applicant.
Once the USCIS accepts the Form I-601A for processing, the applicant receives a Receipt Notice. This document, Form I-797C, confirms the receipt of the application and includes a receipt number, which is critical for tracking the case’s progress.
Following the acceptance of the application, USCIS schedules a Biometrics Appointment. Applicants under the age of 79 are required to attend this appointment for fingerprinting and other biometric services, with the associated fee already paid at the time of initial filing.
Case Status Tracking
Applicants can monitor the status of their Form I-601A using the receipt number from the Receipt Notice. The USCIS offers case status tracking online or through their customer service hotline, providing transparent updates on the application’s progression.
