USCIS rejects incomplete I-918 and I-589 applications

As of December 31, 2019, USCIS instructs the public that it will reject certain incomplete immigration forms including:

  • Form I-918, Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status
  • Form I-918, Supplement A, Petition for Qualifying Family Member of U-1 Recipient
  • Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal

USCIS rejects these application forms if the applicant leaves a required field blank.  Applicants must answer all required questions.  If they do not know the answer, they should put down "unknown". They may also put down "none" or "n/a" if the requested information does not exist or does not apply. Optional fields can be left blank.  For example, if the person does not have a middle name, they should still put down "none" or "n/a".
