Form G-1145 E-Notification

Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance

What is Form G-1145?

Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance, is a one-page form on which you provide your name, mobile phone number, and email address. You then submit the form with your petition or application that you are filing with USCIS so that you will receive an SMS or email informing you of when your application or petition is received by USCIS.

How Does It Work?

When USCIS first scans your submission at one of the three lockbox facilities (this service is only available at the lockbox facilities) the barcode on the Form G-1145 will generate and send either an email or SMS text message (or both) simply informing you that your submission has been received.

How Much Does It Cost?

$0. It is free as indicated on the latest USCIS Filing Fee Schedule.

Who Can Use Form G-1145?

Anyone who is filing forms at on of the three Lockbox facilities located in Lewisville, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; and Phoenix, Arizona.

What Information Will Be Provided In The Notification?

The notification will list your receipt number and tell you how to obtain case status information.

E-Notifications do not include any personal information, not even your name, because email and text message are not secure ways for USCIS to transmit that information.

What Is The Benefit Of This?

It allows you to be informed that your papers physically arrived at the USCIS lockbox facility. This can be helpful for letting you know that your package was not lost in the mail. Even mail sent with tracking can sometimes go missing despite USPS tracking indicating that it was delivered. It provides some piece of mind.

What Is The Form G-1145 Edition Date?
