New method for file processing times from USCIS
Many people who have submitted their applications to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are rightly wondering when their files will be processed. Prior to the pandemic, there was already a significant backlog of immigration applications and this number has steadily increased with the pandemic. There are currently around 2.6 million visa applications waiting to be processed at the immigration office.
In this context, the Immigration Department has announced a new pilot scheme to provide more accurate information to applicants about the way it calculates processing times.
Accordingly, for now, for certain categories of cases, the immigration office will start giving estimated timeframes. For example, the first date in the interval will be the time when 50% of the files are completed on average, and the second date will be the time when 93% of the files are processed and completed.
