After Your Application has been Submitted for B-2 Visitor

Once your application has been received, USCIS will send you a notification to the mailing address listed on your Form I-539. Requests for more information may also be sent to your mailing address. It is important to read every document sent to you by USCIS and follow all instructions. If you are confused or would like guidance on what to do, you can ask an ISSS advisor. On your receipt notification, you will have a receipt number. You can use this number to check the status of your application online by clicking here.

As of March 8, 2019, every applicant and co-applicant will receive a biometric services appointment notice, regardless of age, containing their individual receipt number. The biometric services appointments will be scheduled at the Application Support Center (ASC) closest to the primary applicant's address. Co-applicants who wish to be scheduled at a different ASC location should file a separate Form I-539. USCIS will reject any Form I-539 that is missing any of the required signatures or biometrics fees, including those required for Form I-539A.

Application Support Centers are closed for services to the public until further notice as a result of the coronavirus. This could delay the processing of your application. However, you are permitted to be in the U.S. until a decision about your application has been made.

If at any point you wish to return home, you do not have to wait for your application decision. Your application will likely be denied for the change to B-2 visitor.
