If you are planning to file I-130 or I-485 application, the table above will give you an idea of how many applicants are ahead of you.

Since USCIS goes by last receipt date, if you are going to file your I-485 (or just filed), you will be placed behind this queue. Exception is if application is preadjudicated then it would go by PD.

Please remember to update the tracker with any new data. We have added a new column called "Case Transferred To".

Tip: USCIS again updated their processing time some days ago. Please see the link on right side of this page (under USCIS Links) or the GC Calculator page.


  1. You're missing Nebraska, Texas, and the actual NBC in there. (Also, are these stand alone I130's or concurrent filing?)

    1. The volume of FB application in Nebraska and Texas is currently very low. Also USCIS does not publish data for NBC/MSC.

      For I-130 these are the total I-130 applications. So it is actually both stand alone and concurrent filings.
