On January 12, 2018, USCIS changed the processing location for certain Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition, filings. Previously the Service Center Operations Directorate processed these filings.

Now, the International Adjudications Support Branch (IASB) in the Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Directorate will process the petitions filed by individuals who were admitted to the United States as refugees. Petitioners and/or accredited representatives who file refugee-based Form I-730 petitions will receive further instructions when IASB receives their filings.

Form I-730 petitions filed by persons granted asylum will not be affected by this change.

The mailing instructions for Form I-730 remain the same. Petitioners should continue to follow theWhere to File directions on the Form I-730 page.
