Use our simple step-by-step system to easily complete your Form I-824 to request Duplicate Approval Notice (Form I-797) online. Our easy to use system will provide you with everything you need to replace I-797 and file your immigration form I-824 with United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
When you are approved for a US visa or another US process, you will be mailed an approval notice from the USCIS, proving that your petition has been approved. However, in some cases, you may need more than one approval notice. For example, your visa may allow you to sponsor your immediate family to come to the US and you may need to send your approval notice to a consulate so that your family can join you in the US.
Or, you may be granted an approval notice for one petition and may need to have that notice sent to a consulate so that you can make an additional immigration petition.
If you need more than one approval notice or if you need an approval notice to be sent to a US consulate (other than the one where the original was sent), you must file USCIS Form I-824 (Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition).
In order to apply using form I-824, Application for Duplicate Approval Notice, you must be either the Applicant or Petitioner of the original USCIS Application or Petition filed.
The processing time using Form I-824 ranges from three to six months.
