USCIS Launches E-Notification

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched an “E-Notification” initiative for immigration applications and petitions filed at USCIS Lockbox facilities in Chicago, Illinois; Phoenix, Arizona; and Lewisville, Texas. If you file your USCIS applications and/or petitions at one of these facilities, you will have the option to receive an e-mail and/or text message informing you that USCIS has accepted your application or petition. If you would like to receive an E-Notification that your application or petition has been accepted, complete Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance, and attach it to the top of your application or petition.

Forms that are currently processed through the USCIS Lockbox facilities relate to:

  • Family-based forms
  • Applications for Temporary Protected Status
  • Card replacement
  • Citizenship and naturalization forms
  • Adoption forms

By the end of 2009, the following additional forms are expected to be filed through Lockbox facilities:

  • All remaining adjustment-of-status forms
  • All employment authorization request forms
  • All requests for travel documents
