Workload Transfer from the Vermont Service Center to the California Service Center and Nebraska Service Center

USCIS recently began transferring certain casework from the Vermont Service Center (VSC) to the California Service Center (CSC) and Nebraska Service Center (NSC) to balance workloads:

  • The CSC will now process Form I­539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status;
  • The NSC will process Form I765, Application for Employment Authorization, filed by an asylum applicant with a pending asylum application filed on or after Jan. 4, 1995.  The eligibility category for the application is (c)(8).

If your case was transferred the USCIS will send you a transfer notice. Your original receipt number will not change and the transfer will not delay the processing of your case except for the additional time needed to transfer the file. Furthermore, the filling location and instructions for these forms will not change.
