USCIS updates filing location for Forms I-918 and I-485 for applicants filing for U nonimmigrant status

  1. Date Announced

    June 29, 2020

    Applicants for U status residing in certain states must file Form I-918, form I-918 Supplement A, and form I-918 Supplement B at the Nebraska Service Center (NSC) instead of the Vermont Service Center (VSC). Similarly, some U nonimmigrants applying for adjustment of status (Form I-485) also must file at the NSC. Unlike the VSC, the NSC address for mailed applications does not specify the I-918 or VAWA unit, while the address provided for private delivery services does include that specificity. Petitioners have a 30-day grace period through July 30 to file above forms at previous service centers. After that date, USCIS may reject any Form I-918 or related forms sent to the incorrect service center. [ID #1036]
