USCIS Notifies Employers of Delays in Issuing and Mailing of Receipt Notices for I-129s and I-140s

On April 27, 2006, USCIS issued a Public Notice providing details about its
delay in issuing and mailing receipt notices for Forms I-129 and I-140 filed in
early April 2006. Citing an “unusually large volume of receipts” at the Service
Centers during the first week of April, USCIS explained that it is taking longer
than expected to enter cases into the system. Depending on the type of case, it
may take USCIS up to two weeks to generate and mail receipt notices. USCIS
promised that, although the “Notice Date” will reflect the date the receipt
notice was actually generated, the original receipt date will be honored and
recorded on the receipt notice under “Received Date.” USCIS also stated that it
is addressing the problem and expects to be current by mid-May.
