Default what is extended Background check

Hello Guys

I was told by the information officer that my application is under extended background check. Does anyone know what extended background check is?

Did anyone face the same situation? What are they even trying to do?

this is a standard reply when we enquire about a case.
I had enquired about 140 and got the same message. Then took an infopass and there the IO told there is nothing at 140 level and what I got is a standard reply .

Default did you write to Ombudsman ?

Alex,
Hope you can recognize me

Did you write to the Ombudsman in form 7001 about 140 delay ( other thread ). I sent it yesterday. When did you file 140 at NSC ?

Thanks,
Diptam

What exactly is that? Do you know what they are trying to do? Is it part of delay tactics? What exactly do they do in extended background check does anyone know what it is?

Default What is an "Extended Review?"

How Immigration Security Checks Work:
USCIS normally uses the following three background check mechanisms but maintains the authority to conduct other background investigations as necessary:

• The Interagency Border Inspection System (IBIS) Name Check— IBIS is a multi-agency database check involving several government departments.
• FBI Fingerprint Check—
• FBI Name Checks—

However, due to both the sheer volume of security checks USCIS conducts, and the need to ensure that each applicant is thoroughly screened, some delays on individual applications are inevitable. Background search may still be considered pending when either the FBI background search or relevant agency has not provided the final response to the background search or when the FBI or agency has provided a response, but the response requires further investigation or review by the agency or USCIS.

When people call USCIS service centers directly, they are sometimes told that their cases are under "extended review" or "additional review." We have not been able to obtain a clear definition from the USCIS regarding exactly what constitute an extended review, but here are three theories:
1. "Extended review" means "final review." It is referring to the final stage of the processing after se
2. "Extended review" means "external review." It means USCIS is awaiting information from another government agency.curity checks have been cleared and the case is ready to be adjudicated.
3. "Extended review" means "under review." It is a term loosely used by some representatives and could be anything, security checks, officer review, or in another word, just normal processing.

Until the USCIS give an official definition, many people believe theory #3 is probably true.
