Historical National Median Processing Time (in Months) for All USCIS Offices for Select Forms By Fiscal Year
Fiscal Year 2017 to 2021 (up to April 30, 2021)
March 30, 2021 Update: The previous version of the Historical Processing Times page used an older
method to calculate processing times. The revised version of this page uses the new method to calculate processing times, as described on
our Case Processing Times page, for the selected forms in the table. In addition, the page now includes median processing times data from
FY 2017 through Feb. 28, 2021, for the selected forms in the table (with the exception of the I-600 and I-600A). This new method is more
accurate and allows for more timely updates.
