H2A Update: USCIS To Email H2A Approval Notice To Petitioners

Starting January 22, 2018, USCIS will email H-2A Approval Notice and Receipt Notice to H-2A petitioners.

The H-2A Approval and Receipt notices will be emailed to the email address provided in Part 1 of Form I-129, and to any email address provided for the attorney or accredited representative on a valid Form G-28. In addition to the email notices, USCIS will continue to send Receipt and Approval notice by postal mail.

USCIS will also use pre-paid mailers provided by H-2A petitioners to send Requests for Evidence (RFE), if one issued in the case.

H-2A petitioners will now be able to submit two pre-paid mailers if they want to expedite delivery of both the final decision notice and any RFE issued. If only one pre-paid mailer is provided by the petitioner, USCIS will use it to send the RFE, if any. USCIS will send the final decision notice in a pre-paid mailer only if the petitioner provided a second pre-paid mailer, or the petitioner provided one pre-paid mailer, and no RFE was issued. USCIS will no longer send Receipt Notices to H-2A petitioners via pre-paid mailer.
