What does i290 denial mean?

Asked 5 months ago - Wilmington, DE

On April 9, 2014, we mailed you a denial decision notice for this case I290B NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER. The notice explains why the denial decision was made and the options that may be available to you. If you have not received this notice within 15 days of April 9, 2014, please call customer service at 1-800-375-5283 for further assistance.

During this step the formal decision (approved/denied) is written and the decision notice is mailed and/or emailed to the applicant/petitioner. You can use our current processing time to gauge when you can expect to receive a final decision.

Does it mean it is denial? (i am currently maintaining f1 visa status.)

Additional information

Post Decision Activity

    Answered . Yes, it means your case was denied. It means you need to talk to your attorney about either filing a new case or appealing the denial to a federal court if there are grounds for it.
