Incorrectly Filed I-601As Are Being Rejected


Since March 4, 2013, USCIS has been accepting applications for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers (“Form I-601A”).  Many of these applications have been rejected, however, because customers did not provide proof that the required Immigrant Visa Application Fee was paid to the Department of State (“DOS”).

Individuals filing Form I-601A should make sure to:

  • Pay the Immigrant Visa Application Fee before filing Form I-601A.
  • Send the DOS Immigrant Visa Application Fee receipt along with the I-601A application; and
  • Make sure the receipt is the official, DOS-issued receipt with the National Visa Center Case Number clearly visible.
