How long does it take for RFE response review to decision?
The RFE should indicate an expected timeframe for your response, typically within 30 – 90 days (but never more than 12 weeks). Once USCIS receives your response to the RFE, the adjudicator will issue a notice of receipt with an expected timeline to review your newly submitted evidence.
What happens after responding to RFE?
What Happens Next? When USCIS issues an RFE, the processing of your original application will stop. Once you submit the appropriate paperwork in response to the RFE, you can expect to hear back from USCIS within the next 60 days about their decision or what further action is needed.
Does USCIS update case status regularly?
In my experience, they only update the case status when there is something new to report, such as when a case is scheduled for an interview. It could be many months between such updates and processing times for all types of cases have been steadily increasing for the past two years.
What does it mean when USCIS is reviewing your case?
It means that the USCIS officer reviewing your application needs more information before he or she can make a decision. If you don’t meet the deadline, USCIS will make a decision based on the information and documents it already has, and that often means your application will be denied.
Where do I send RFE response?
Mail the RFE package to the address specified on the RFE. It is also recommended to send your response via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail or a courier that can track your package. You want to have delivery confirmation so you have proof that you responded in the allowed time frame.
How long does it take to get a response for RFE?
On average, it can take 2-4 months after receipt of the RFE response. Once an RFE is issued the case is taken out of the USCIS case processing time tracking parameters. Basically, it can take until the immigration officer gets back to the case and makes his/her decision.
How do I respond to RFE?
You have only three options when you respond to an RFE in the time allocated by USCIS : You can submit all of the requested evidence at the same time. You can “partially respond” by providing some of the evidence that was requested, which will alert USCIS that you would like a decision to be made based on the information it has at that time.
How long to wait after RFE response?
USCIS normally responds to RFE’s within 60 days, however they do not have processing times on how long it takes them to respond. It can be longer than that. I would call the USCIS number: 1 (800) 375-5283 and submit a service request, if you do not hear from them soon.
