5 Ways to Check the Status of Your Pending Application with USCIS

After you've filed your petition or application with USCIS, what happens next? It takes time USCIS to process your case, so it's important to keep track on the status to ensure that your petition or application is processed in a timely manner and to check to see if there are any issues that may cause a delay in the processing of your case.

USCIS receives thousands of petitions and applications every year so processing times vary depending on the type of case you've filed and where you've filed it. You can check the processing times of the field offices, service centers, and National Benefits Center here: Processing Times. Some petitioner and applications can take several weeks to be approved and others can take several months to process.

Here are the different ways you can track the status of your case:

Phone

One way to check the status of your pending case is to call USCIS at 1-800-375-5283. You can call them whether or not you have a receipt number. Depending on how busy they are, you can be placed on hold anywhere from two minutes to two hours.

Online at the USCIS Website

A simple way to check the status of your pending case is to go to the USCIS website: USCIS Check Status. You will need your 13-character receipt number (ex. WAC-01-234-56789) in order to check online.

Email/Text/Phone App

You can also sign up for automatic updates and have them sent to your email by creating an account with USCIS and providing your email address: USCIS Sign-up for Case Updates. If you prefer to have updates on your case sent to your phone, after you've created an account, you can provide your phone number to receive a text message notifying you when a case status update has occurred. You will need your receipt number for both these options.There are also various types of phone apps you can use as well to track the status of your case such as USCIS Case Status Notifier (Android), Case Status Lite (Apple and Android), USCIS Helper (Apple), and USCIS Checker (Apple, Android, and Windows).

Mail

You can also request a case status update by mail if you've filed your petition or application through a local USCIS Field Office. In your letter, you'll need to provide your personal information such as your full name, birth date, alien number (if applicable), the date and place your petition or application was filed, and your receipt number (if you've received one). You should also include a copy of your receipt notice if you have it.

In Person

If you wish to find out the status of your case in person, you can schedule an InfoPass appointment with your local office and speak with an immigration officer. You can schedule an InfoPass appointment here: InfoPass Appointment Scheduling.

So what's the best way to keep updated on your case status? Most people prefer to have updates sent to their email or phone so that they don't have to constantly go to the USCIS website to check. If you've already been granted approval and want a preview of what is to come, check out everything you need to know about status changes.

How do I log into CEAC?

Immigrant visa applicants use their National Visa Center (NVC) case number and invoice ID number to log into CEAC. NVC will send you both of those numbers when they receive your approved petition from USCIS. Keep this information in a safe place.

Where do I find my NVC case number and invoice ID number?

The National Visa Center (NVC) will send you both of those numbers. After NVC receives your approved petition from USCIS, NVC creates a case file for you at the Department of State and assigns you an NVC case number. NVC will send you a letter or e-mail with your case number and a separate invoice ID number. Keep in mind that you cannot begin to pay fees or submit documents until you receive this letter from NVC instructing you to begin processing.

Who can log into my CEAC account?

Upon receipt of your approved petition from USCIS, NVC will send your log-in information to you (the visa applicant), your petitioner in the United States, and your attorney (if you have designated one). If you want to share your information with anyone else, that is up to you. Keep in mind that if you add anyone’s email address to your case so they can receive updates and instructions – such as another family member or friend – that person will receive your log-in information. Make sure you only share this information with people you know and trust. Do not share information about your case on social media, and never give your case number to strangers.

Is my personal information on CEAC secure?

Your application information on CEAC is secure. You need two unique pieces of information to log into CEAC. To provide additional protection, users will be unable to view documents that contain Social Security numbers and sensitive financial information once they are submitted to CEAC. You will only be able to view them if NVC finds an error and asks you to delete the document and upload a new one.

Where do I find messages from NVC?

When NVC has an update to your case status or needs to ask you to submit additional information, they will post a message in your CEAC account. You can find these on the top-right of the summary page in a box titled “Messages.” Simply click on the message icon to be taken to the message screen, which resembles an email inbox. Whenever NVC puts a new message in your CEAC account, they will send an email to every email address listed on your case. This email will tell you to log into CEAC to read your message.

Can I send NVC a message through CEAC?

No, if you have any questions after reviewing this page, please contact us using our Public Inquiry Form.

I’m not getting alerts from NVC that there has been a change in my CEAC account. How can I update my email address?

Please check the “Email Addresses” section of your CEAC account to make sure that we have your correct email address. Please follow these instructions if you need to update your email address.

How can I update my email address?

It is very important that you let NVC know if your email address changes, since that is our primary way of contacting you. It is easy to update your email address on CEAC. On the top-right area of your summary page, you will see a box that says “Email addresses.” Simply click on the “edit” button and you’ll be taken to a screen where you can delete, add, or change email addresses for you (the visa applicant), your petitioner, and any third-party agent you want to receive notifications about your case. However, at this time you cannot update your attorney’s information online. Attorneys need to contact NVC by using our Public Inquiry Form if there is a change to their contact information.

How do I update my mailing address or phone number?

To update the mailing address or phone number of anyone associated with a case, please contact NVC using our Public Inquiry Form. Remember that whenever you contact NVC please provide your case number, the name of the petitioner, and the name and date of birth of the principal visa applicant.

How do I know the status of my case?

Once you log into CEAC, you will see a summary page for your case. There are multiple places on this page where you can see the location and status of your case. On the top right of the page is a field that says “Your case is currently at.” This field will note whether your case is at NVC or an embassy or consulate overseas.

At the bottom of the summary page is a chart that has information on the status of each visa applicant and financial sponsor on your case. With one glance, you can see who has paid their fees, who submitted a visa application form, and whether all of the required documents for both visa applicants and financial sponsors have been submitted to NVC. If anything reads “Start Now,” “Incomplete,” or “Not Submitted,” that means that you must submit something to NVC for review. If everything says “Paid,” “Complete,” “In Process,” or “Submitted,” that means NVC is reviewing your case.

How do I read the status chart on my CEAC summary page?

There are two sections to read. The first is titled “Affidavit of Support.” Below that is a section titled “Applicant Information.” Here is a sample status chart:

How to read the Affidavit of Support section:  This section shows the status of all the financial sponsors on a case. For family-based immigration, the petitioner is always listed as a financial sponsor. There will be a status listed for each sponsor in the three columns in the Affidavit of Support section:

  1. Role column

    Petitioner/Primary Sponsor = Petitioners of family-sponsored immigration cases must submit an Affidavit of Support form, no matter their income level.

    Joint Sponsor = The petitioner does not meet the required minimum income threshold to sponsor an immigrating family member and has asked this person to be a joint sponsor.

    Household Member =The petitioner does not meet the required minimum income threshold to sponsor an immigrating family member and has asked a relative who lives with him/her to help sponsor the immigrant.

  2. Affidavit of Support Fee column

    Start Now =        You must pay this fee.

    In Process =        Your payment is being processed online.

    Paid =    The fee has been received by NVC.

  3. Affidavit of Support Documents and Financial Evidence column

    Start Now =        You have not uploaded or submitted any documents for this sponsor.

    Incomplete =      The financial sponsor has started uploading documents but has not finished.

    Not Submitted =  You have uploaded all of the required documents but have not submitted them to NVC.

    Submitted =        The financial sponsor has uploaded and submitted all required documents, and NVC is now reviewing them.

    Invalid Doc =      NVC reviewed the required documents and something is incorrect or missing. The financial sponsor should go to the document screen to read NVC’s instructions and upload new documents.

    Accepted =          NVC reviewed the financial documents and there are no changes that need to be made.

How to read the Applicant Information section:  This section has a list of all the visa applicants associated with a single case number. There will be a status listed for each visa applicant under the four columns in the Applicant Information section:

  1. Status column

    Principal Applicant = The person who is the main beneficiary of the immigrant petition. This person has a close family relationship with the petitioner in the United States, or is an employee of the sponsoring U.S. company.

    Accompany = This visa applicant is a derivative family member of the principal applicant and will immigrate to the United States at the same time as his/her parent or spouse.

    Follow-to-Join = This visa applicant is a derivative family member of the principal applicant and will immigrate to the United States much later than his/her parent or spouse. For that reason, this applicant is not going to submit a visa application package now and will not attend a visa interview until he/she is ready to immigrate.

  2. IV Fee column

    Start Now =        You must pay this fee.

    In Process =        Your payment is being processed online.

    Paid =    The fee has been received by NVC.

  3. IV Application column

    N/A =    You haven’t paid the IV fee for this applicant. You won’t have access to the application form until the fee is paid.

    Start Now =        Begin filling out your application form.

    Incomplete =     You began working on your form but have not finished.

    Re-opened =      You completed your form but need to make a change. Only NVC or a U.S. Embassy can re-open a Form DS-260 for you.

    Completed =      You have submitted your form to NVC.

  4.  Civil Documents column

    N/A =    You haven’t completed the IV Application (DS-260) for this applicant. You won’t have access to the application form until the fee is paid.

    Start Now =        No documents have been uploaded.

    Incomplete =      You started uploading documents but have not finished.

    Not Submitted= You have uploaded all of the required documents but have not submitted them to NVC.

    Submitted =        You uploaded and submitted all required documents, and NVC is reviewing them.

    Invalid Doc =      NVC reviewed all the required documents and something is incorrect or missing. Please go to the document screen to read NVC’s instructions and upload new documents.

    Accepted =          NVC reviewed the documents and there are no changes that need to be made.

How do I read the status on the Affidavit of Support tab and Civil Documents tab?

You need to first choose the visa applicant or financial sponsor whose status you want to review. Then you can look at the status of each document that person submitted. Each document is listed in a column on the left. To the right of each document name are three columns: Date Uploaded, Status, and Response Note. Here is an example:

The Status column will reflect one of the following statuses:

Missing =             You need to upload and submit this document.

Uploaded =         You scanned and uploaded this document but you have not submitted it for NVC’s review.

N/A =    You marked this document as not available.

Submitted =        You submitted this document and it is with NVC for review.

Rejected =           NVC reviewed this document and something is incorrect. Please look at NVC’s feedback to the right under “Response Note” and then correct and re-submit the document.

Accepted =         NVC has reviewed this document and there are no changes that need to be made.

If NVC finds an error on a required document, they will reject the document and tell you what needs to be corrected. They will post their feedback to the right of the document, in the Response Note column. They will also send you a message in your CEAC account detailing what the error is and how to fix it. You then need to delete the rejected document, and upload a corrected document. After you submit it, NVC will review it.

What is a derivative family member?

A “derivative” visa applicant is the spouse or minor unmarried child (younger than age 21) of the beneficiary of an immigrant petition. Derivative family members can apply for immigrant visas with the beneficiary, who is considered the “principal” applicant. These derivative applicants must fill out required application forms, obtain required civil documents, pay the required fees, and undergo medical examinations. Same-sex spouses of U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), along with their minor children, are eligible for the same immigration benefits as opposite-sex spouses.

What if my derivative family member wants to wait to immigrate?

The principal applicant (the person who is named in the immigrant petition as the “beneficiary”) must enter the United States before or at the same time as other family members with visas. As long as the principal applicant spouse or parent has already immigrated to the United States, the derivative family member can wait to complete his or her visa application process. This is called “follow to join.”

However, the family member needs to consider these important points:

•             You should not attend a visa interview at an embassy overseas if you do not intend to immigrate right away. This is because immigrant visas expire quickly, at maximum six (6) months from the date of the required medical exam. Your visa cannot be extended and all fees are nonrefundable.

•             Children of U.S Citizens must enter the United States before they turn 18 years old; otherwise they lose the ability to automatically become a U.S. citizen under the Child Citizenship Act.

•             A derivative child who may be eligible for benefits under the Child Status Protection Act could lose those protections if they do not pursue Lawful Permanent Residence within a year of a visa becoming available to them.

•             You must ensure your application does not terminate. To do this, you must contact NVC at least once a year.

How do I change a derivative family member’s status to “follow-to-join”?

If the case is at the National Visa Center, you can make this change in CEAC. On the case summary page’s status chart, there is a list of visa applicants under “Applicant Information.” To change the traveling status of a derivative family member to follow-to-join, click on the drop-down box in the “Status” column. Select “Follow-to-join.” Alternately, if your family member decides to travel with you to the United States, you can select “Accompanying.”

Once you make this change, the applicant’s status will read “Under Review.” It will take approximately one hour before the change to “Follow-to-join” or “Accompanying” shows in CEAC’s status chart.

If your case has already been scheduled for a visa interview and your family member decides to change his/her traveling status, please contact the U.S. Embassy right away.

How do I add a derivative family member to my case?

On the case summary page’s status chart, there are two buttons under “Applicant Information.” To add or remove a family member from your case, click on the appropriate button. You will have to enter information about your family member, including name, address, email, and relationship to you. The new derivative visa applicant’ name will then appear on the list of applicants and you will have to pay the Immigrant Visa Fee, complete a Form DS-260 application, and upload civil documents for that person. However, it will take approximately one hour after adding a family member before the option to pay the Immigrant Visa Application Fee is active.

Note that some visa categories are only for unmarried persons, and a change in marital status could make you ineligible for that visa category. Typically eligibility for a visa category depends on the legal status of the petitioning family member in the United States, your age, and your marital status. You can find a list of immigrant visa categories on our website with details on the eligibility requirements for each type of immigrant visa.

No. Anything that is uploaded is automatically saved to your CEAC account. However, NVC will not have access to your documents until you press the “Submit Documents” button on both the Affidavit of Support tab and Civil Documents tab. You cannot submit documents until all of the required documents have been uploaded for every visa applicant and every financial sponsor listed on your case in CEAC.

The “Submit Documents” button isn’t working. What’s wrong?

The “Submit Documents” button is not available until you have uploaded every required document for every visa applicant listed in the Civil Documents tab, and for every financial sponsor in the Affidavit of Support tab. If the status of any required document is “Missing,” you cannot press the “Submit Documents” button.

My scanner won’t save my document in the required size. How can I fix this?

Your scanner probably has a default resolution that is very large but that can be changed in the scanner’s settings. Look for a section titled “File save settings,” “Auto mode,” “Resolution,” “Image settings,” or something similar. You may be able to change the default resolution or you may need to specify the resolution each time you scan a document. If there is an option to show the settings dialog box each time you scan, you may want to make that option active. You shouldn’t need a default resolution of more than 50 to 75 dpi.

My scanner automatically saves my documents in a file type that CEAC doesn’t accept. What do I do?

Your scanner probably has a default file type that can be changed in the scanner’s settings. Look for a section titled “File save settings,” “File type,” “Image settings,” “Auto mode,” or something similar. Make sure that under “Image format” or “Type” it says .jpg, .jpeg, or .pdf. If there is an option to show the settings dialog box each time you scan, you may want to make that option active.

I’m not able to log into CEAC. What should I do?

If you are using the correct case number and invoice ID to log in and you are receiving an error message, please take a screenshot of the message and send it to us using the Public Inquiry Form.

The “Submit Documents” button isn’t working. What’s wrong?

The “Submit Documents” button is not available until you have uploaded something for every required document for every financial sponsor listed on your case. If the status of any required document is “Missing,” you cannot press the “Submit Documents” button.

Arrival/Departure Forms: I-94 and I-94W

Foreign visitors to the U.S. arriving via air or sea no longer need to complete paper Customs and Border Protection Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record or Form I-94W Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure Record. Those who need to prove their legal-visitor status—to employers, schools/universities or government agencies—can access their CBP arrival/departure record information online. CBP now gathers travelers’ arrival/departure information automatically from their electronic travel records.

Now at the land border, travelers will be issued I-94s electronically and will no longer receive a paper I-94 stub. CBP encourages travelers requiring an I-94 to use the CBP One™ mobile app or the CBP I-94 website (https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home) to apply for their I-94.  Although an approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is not required at the land border for citizens of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries, if these travelers have an approved ESTA (https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/), they can use the I-94 website or CBP One™ mobile app to apply in advance and avoid filling out the Form I-94W when arriving at a port of entry.

If a traveler would like a paper Form I-94, the traveler can print their own I-94 Form from the I-94 website using "Get Most Recent I-94" or by using the same option on a librarys online catalog is a computerized index of One™ mobile application. A paper form can be requested during the inspection process but all such requests will be accommodated in a secondary setting.

If travelers need the information from their Form I-94 admission record to verify immigration status or employment authorization, they are encouraged to get their I-94 Number from the I-94 website or by using the CBP One™ mobile app. Upon exiting the U.S., travelers issued a paper Form I-94 should surrender it to the commercial carrier, Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA), or to CBP upon departure. If you received an electronic I-94 upon arrival by air or sea or land and depart via land, your departure may not be recorded accurately. A departure will be recorded if you depart via land and re-enter the United States prior to the expiration date stamped in your passport. If you are not a resident of Canada or Mexico and you receive an electronic I-94 and depart via land but do not re-enter the United San jose air quality forecast prior to the expiration date stamped on your passport, you may want to travel with evidence of your departure into Canada or Mexico. Evidence of departure can include, but is not limited to, entry stamps in a passport, transportation tickets, pay stubs and/or other receipts. A traveler can request an entry stamp from CBSA when entering Canada or from the Instituto Nacional de Migracion (INM) when entering Mexico.

Otherwise, when leaving via air or sea, CBP will record the departure electronically via manifest information provided by the carrier or by CBP.

This automation streamlines the entry process for travelers, facilitates security and reduces federal costs. CBP estimates that the automated process will save the agency $15.5 million a year.

For more information and for answers to frequently asked questions, see the I-94 Fact Sheet.

The CBP INFO Center offers questions and answers for I-94.

NOTICE: Beginning in May 2019, I-94 numbers will be alphanumeric.  Currently, I-94 numbers are 11 digits long and only contain numbers.  In order to minimize program impact resulting from the depletion of numeric-only I-94 numbers and to create a long-term solution for the creation of new numbers, CBP is switching to alphanumeric I-94s.  I-94 numbers will remain at 11 characters but will follow the format of 9 digits, followed by a letter in the 10th position, and a digit in the 11th position.  Unexpired I-94s issued in the current numeric-only format will continue to be valid until the Admit Until Date printed on the paper I-94 and/or the date displayed on the public I-94 website at https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home.

5 Ways to Check the Status of Your Pending Application with USCIS

After you've filed your petition or application with USCIS, what happens next? It takes time USCIS to process your case, so it's important to keep track on the status to ensure that your petition or application is processed in a timely manner and to check to see if there are any issues that may cause a delay in the processing of your case.

USCIS receives thousands of petitions and applications every year so processing times vary depending on the type of case you've filed and where you've filed it. You can check the processing times of the field offices, service centers, and National Benefits Center here: Processing Times. Some petitioner and applications can take several weeks to be approved and others can take several months to process.

Here are the different ways you can track the status of your case:

Phone

One way to check the status of your pending case is to call USCIS at 1-800-375-5283. You can call them whether or not you have a receipt number. Depending on how busy they are, you can be placed on hold anywhere from two minutes to two hours.

Online at the USCIS Website

A simple way to check the status of your pending case is to go to the USCIS website: USCIS Check Status. You will need your 13-character receipt number (ex. WAC-01-234-56789) in order to check online.

Email/Text/Phone App

You can also sign up for automatic updates and have them sent to your email by creating an account with USCIS and providing your email address: USCIS Sign-up for Case Updates. If you prefer to have updates on your case sent to your phone, after you've created an account, you can provide your phone number to receive a text message notifying you estimate total mortgage payment a case status update has occurred. You will need your receipt number for both these options.There are also various types of phone apps you can use as well to track the status of your case such as USCIS Case Status Notifier (Android), Case Status Lite (Apple and Android), USCIS Helper (Apple), and USCIS Checker (Apple, Android, and Windows).

Mail

You can also request a case status update by mail if you've filed your petition or application through a local USCIS Field Office. In your letter, you'll need to provide your personal information such as your full name, birth date, alien number (if applicable), the date and place your petition or application was filed, and your receipt number (if you've received one). You should also include a copy of your receipt notice if you have it.

In Person

If you wish to find out the status of your case in person, you can schedule an InfoPass appointment with your local office and speak with an immigration officer. You can schedule an InfoPass appointment here: InfoPass Appointment Scheduling.

So what's the best way to keep updated on your case status? Most people prefer to have updates sent to their email or phone so that they don't have to constantly go to the USCIS website to check. If you've already been granted approval and want a preview of what is to come, check out everything you need to know about status changes.
