Welcome back. Go to your forms.
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).
