USCIS EB I-485 Processing Statistics

Current case load continues to be equally distributed between TSC and NSC for most categories.

Number of preadjudicated cases decreased by around 4,000 for both TSC and NSC.

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 (even if your PD is before these applicants). Exception is if application is preadjudicated then it would go by PD.

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


  1. How does this data affects EB3 row!?

    1. These data were probably already factored into the December visa bulletin, which came out on 11/7 and delivered a one-year jump in EB3-ROW. To understand what kind of changes we should anticipate in the next (Feb 2014) visa bulletin, we would need to know how many I-485s USCIS has received *after* that jump.

  2. That's a good question. Are the February predictions influenced by these numbers, or do you think they'll stay the same for eb3row?

    1. Yeah, these were already taken into account.
