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.
