Withdrawing the Visa Petition Before USCIS Has Approved It

If the application has not yet been approved or denied by USCIS, it’s easy to cancel or withdraw it by sending the letter to USCIS.

There is no official withdrawal USCIS form.

You need to know the USCIS office that’s currently handling the petition/ Application.
Enclose a copy of the receipt notice, if you received one from USCIS. That will help it trace your file.

You would also need to write a reason of withdrawal.

USCIS Application withdrawal letter Processing Time

There is no defined processing time for withdrawal request. The only proof you have is the ‘certified mail’ that you send and the scanned copy of the letter.

You can assume to have done the withdrawal that day it is received by USCIS.

If any issue is raised by USCIS later with respect to your withdrawal or current status, you can submit the certified mail receipt and copy of letter as a proof that you did request a withdrawal.
