USCIS to Centralize Filing and Adjudication for Certain Waivers of Inadmissibility (including I-212 & I-601 waivers)
U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services ("USCIS") announced today that the agency will be putting a standardized process in place for waiver applications (Forms I-212, I-601, & I-290B) as of June 4, 2012.
These waiver applications will now be filed directly with USCIS at a lockbox facility. The agency hopes that this change will provide more efficient and consistent adjudication.
Additionally, waiver applicants will be able to check the status of their applications online at the USCIS website.
