This page provides you with the most recent processing times for petitions and applications submitted to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (formerly the INS), the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Department of State (DOS).

We link to the most recent processing times for each of four USCIS Service Centers and to the National Benefits Center in Missouri. We also link to the processing times of all of 83 USCIS District Offices and Suboffices. The District Offices process applications for (1) adjustment of status, (2) employment authorization documents (EADs), (3) travel permits ("advance parole"), and (4) applications for naturalization. We list the latest processing times of appeals decided by the INS's Administration Appeals Office (AAO). The AAO decides the appeals of denials of most USCIS petitions. Also, we link to the Labor Department's page entitled "Processing dates for labor certification applications". These include both state and federal processing times for both regular and reduction in recruitment (RIR) labor certifications. Finally, we link to the State Department's "Visa Wait Times" page.
