What Happens After Fingerprints for an I-601A Application?


After completing the fingerprinting process for your I-601A application (Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver), several steps follow as part of the processing and adjudication by USCIS.

Next Steps

  1. Biometric Confirmation: You receive a confirmation notice that your biometric data has been captured.
  2. Case Processing: USCIS continues to process your application, including background checks.
  3. Requests for Evidence (RFE): USCIS may request additional information.
  4. Decision: You’ll receive a notice of approval or denial.
  5. Consular Processing: If approved, you proceed with an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
  6. Return to the U.S.: If the consular officer approves your immigrant visa, you can return as a lawful permanent resident.
