USCIS began notifying H-2A visa approvals for agricultural workers who
file Form 1-129. In addition, pre-paid mailers are given to H-2A petitioners
who are required to send request for evidence (RFE).
Email Notifications to H-2A Petitioners
Part 1 of Form I-129 asks H-2A petitioners for their e-mail address, while
Form G-28 request e-mails from the attorney or representative of the petition.
USCIS will send approval notifications through those e-mails. There is
no service charge included.
Pre-Paid Mailers for Requests for Evidence
Two pre-paid mailers will be given to H-2A petitioners to make the process
of delivering the final notice faster and to respond to RFE requests.
However, USCIS will not longer notices through pre-paid mailers because
e-mails are more efficient.
