Practice Pointer: Ensuring Proper Delivery of Your RFE or NOID Response to the Nebraska Service Center
AILA's Nebraska Service Center (NSC) Liaison Committee reminds AILA members of the procedures for properly addressing responses to the NSC for Requests for Evidence (RFE) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOID). To ensure proper delivery, the committee encourages members to follow NSC's guidance that is outlined below:
Use Color Codes for Responses to Employment Based, I-129, I-140 and U Visa RFEs and NOIDs
NSC advises AILA members to clearly mark the outside of the envelope or packaging containing responses to RFEs and NOIDs with color-coded stripes. This will help ensure that responses to RFEs or NOIDs are properly routed after arriving at NSC.
Form I-129 and Form I-140 RFE responses submitted by regular processing should be sent in envelopes identified by red
Form I-129 RFE responses submitted to premium processing should be mailed in envelopes with purple stripes and a note specifying that it is a Form I-129 case.
Form I-140 RFE responses submitted to premium processing should be mailed in envelopes with blue stripes and a note specifying that it is a Form I-140 case.
All NOID responses should be sent in envelopes marked by green stripes.
Form I-918 and Form I-918A RFE responses should be mailed in envelopes with yellow (yellow) stripes.
The color coded stripes should correspond to the stripes on the pre-addressed response envelope included with the RFE. For RFE responses that do not fit in the envelope provided by NSC, attach the envelope to the front of the RFE response.
