The G-1145 form is used to request an electronic notification (e-Notification) when US Citizenship and Immigration Services accepts your immigration application.
This provides USCIS with an alternative way to inform you of the status of your immigration application other than through physical mail. This convenient option provides applicants with faster, easier updates straight to a computer or mobile device.
Keep in mind, that even though you will opt-in to receive these updates electronically, you will still need to provide a physical mailing address as the USCIS will also send original copies for official documentation.
How to Complete Form G-1145
You can begin to complete the G-1145 form by downloading a copy from the USCIS website.
The form will include a page that explains the purpose of the form, information on how applicants will be notified, a Privacy Act Statement and a section where you, the applicant, can provide your personal information in order for them to reach you.
This personal information includes:
- The full name of the applicant/petitioner
- Valid email address
- Mobile phone number
There is no fee associated with downloading and filing Form G-1145. As soon as you provide the requested information and submit it, USCIS will be able to send you a text message or email notification regarding the status of your application.
Benefits of Using Form G-1145
The main benefit of this form is convenience. If you submit an application to USCIS, you may have to wait a long time to hear about any updates and you might not be at home when you receive physical mail. Providing additional contact details gives you the opportunity to receive information via email or text message, to make certain you don’t miss any vital updates.
In addition, Form G-1145 is particularly beneficial for people who travel a lot and those who spend long periods of time away from home.
