I-800 Provisional Approval???
« on: March 08, 2010, 09:48:33 AM »

We received our LOA last week and sent the I-800 to USCIS the next day.  I am curious, how are you contacted and told that you have received provisional approval?  Phone call, e-mail, snail-mail, fedex?  Just curious.

Thanks!

We got a letter in the mail stating it was received, then another letter later stating this was our provisional approval.

You can just call your officer and ask the approval to be emailed to you. Most of them will do this (though not all!) Call the main NBC line and ask to be transferred to your officer. If you don't know your officer, they can look it up for you.

Courtney or anyone...I received an automated reply email from my officer that she was out of the office for an extended period of time. Do you think they will assign me someone else...has anyone else had this happen?

You'll be assigned to someone else. This happened to us. Our officer was out when we submitted our I800 after LOA, so we just got a different officer. Turns out, our substitute officer was WAY better than our regular officer!  Laugh

Yes, there is a form (can't remember which one) that you can submit with your I800 paperwork so they will automatically notify you when your paperwork has been received and when it is approved.

First, you will receive a Notice of Action via regular mail that states that your application has been received and is in process.  I called a few days later and learned that we had been approved.  A couple of days later, our provisional approval arrived via regular mail.  FYI...we filled out the form to be notified via email but never received an email notification.

Right after we called and found out we had been approved, we called the NVC to find out if they had record of our case in their system yet.  They did, and we received our NVC letter four days after our I-800 provisional approval letter.
