USCIS Extends Relief Measures for Filipino Typhoon Victims
Release Date: January 14, 2014
WASHINGTON – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013, of agency efforts to provide relief to victims of the typhoon.
In addition, USCIS has proactively identified and is expediting pending I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, forms that have been filed by U.S. citizens for their Filipino immediate relatives. Our standard security checks remain in place.
Form I-130 petitioners may check their case status online at www.uscis.gov or contact the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283 or 1-800-767-1833 (TDD assistance). In addition, a petitioner can sign up to receive automatic case status updates by email as the case is processed. If a Form I-130 petitioner receives a request for evidence or any other type of communication from USCIS, the petitioner’s response must be addressed to the same USCIS Service Center which sent the notice.
