If you are planning to file I-129F, I-130 or I-485 application or have just filed them, 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.

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

  1. Thanks for these statics. Just keep it up and share more as much as you can.

  2. hello amazon. will you provide your analysis on i485 inventory data. eb3row still has around 12K remaining and uscis said that there wil be very little or no movement at all over the next couple of months, how come? does uscis aim at moving the dates foward at some point so that there is no wastage? it will be very good to know your take on this.

    1. I have covered some of the statistics in the April 2014 Visa Bulletin Analysis blog post. There is actually possibility of USCIS/DOS to retrogress EB3ROW slightly. Currently we would have to wait for some more data from USCIS.
