Withdraw Visa Petition Before USCIS Approval
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 should also write the reason for withdrawal. USCIS does not care about the reason as long as they do not sense any fraud.
Application Withdraw Processing Time
There is no defined processing time by USCIS for the withdrawal requests.
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 the letter as proof that you did request a withdrawal.
