Processing Times for immigration matters vary widely. The U.S. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. Department of Labor, and the U.S. Department of State provide a number of resources available to check on the status of your application. Click on the appropriate application category to the left to check on average wait times for cases of your type and, for some categories, the status of your individual application. We also provide resources to check what office you should use to file certain applications and processing times for Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests. You may wish to check back regularly, as these processing times can change.
