How to find out the waiting time for immigration services and check the status of the case

Checking the status of your immigration case is easy - you can do it online from the comfort of your home or office, even just from your mobile phone. For this you need to go to special page the official website of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and follow the simple instructions.

That check the status of your case using the online tool, you must have a receipt number, or Receipt Number. This number is a unique 13-digit identifier that USCIS provides for each application or petition received. It is used to identify and track cases.

The receipt number consists of three letters followed by 10 digits. For example, the letters could be EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC, NBC, MSC, or IOE. You can find them in the action notifications sent to you by USCIS.

So you went to check page. Before entering the receipt number in the field (Enter a Receipt Number), USCIS recommends that you read the confidentiality agreement that appears under the "Check Status" option.

When entering the receipt number, you must omit the dash (“-”), but you can include all other characters, including asterisks (“*”), if they appear on your notice as part of the receipt number.

The online system will show the last action taken on your case and advise you of the next steps, if applicable. USCIS will, among other things, offer useful reminders to keep you up to date and, if necessary, leave any queries.

If you want to check another case, it's time to do it while you are logged in - for this you need to enter a new receipt number in the Enter Another Receipt Number field.

How to check the waiting time for application processing

Go to USCIS special page.

Select the number of the immigration form you need and the office where you have already submitted or intend to file this form. After that, the system will display the average waiting time for processing an application for this form in the office of your choice.

How to submit a request and edit data

Go to USCIS special page.

The system will prompt you to select the desired option for further instructions. This applies to cases when:

  • the case is processed longer than usual;
  • you have not received a notification by mail;
  • you have not received your card in the mail;
  • you have not received the document;
  • you want to request time and schedule an interview;
  • you want to correct a typographical error.
