Hi, everyone,

I had an interview last months, and I went to pick up my decision after two weeks. However, they told me that the decision was not ready and they will mail it to me.

I checked my online case status, it said: "Your decision is pending". However today the online status changed to "Your application with USCIS is still pending."

Does anyone had similar experiences and what is the reason for the change?

Thanks.

My guess is:

Usually, when the asylum officer starts to work on your case the decision would be made very quickly, and there is no status showing "Application is Pending". For some cases however, the AO, off and on, spends time on researching on the case, and "Application is Pending" is shown during this period. When the AO decision is made, the status would change back to "Decision is Pending", and the decision will keep waiting for the review from the supervisor.

It is almost two years that I completed my interview. And was decision is pending until recently.

Do you believe if this is related to a security background check? May I ask if you are from a Muslim-ban country? My interview was in March 2020 and my status also changed from decision pending to application pending

Just an idea,

On USCIS website, try the chatbot "Emma"

Write "Connect to an agent" and it will connect to a real person on USCIS side.

As the agent about it and get answer, once you do then share it back here
