USCIS has begun publishing processing times for certain benefits processed at its international offices and International Operations Division headquarters, including the I-130 consular processing times. Applicants could access this information by visiting USCIS’ Processing Time Information for International Operations Offices page. This information will be updated around the 15th day of each quarter (January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15) to reflect current processing times as of the previous six-month period.
To check processing times, applicants will need to know:
- The type of form, and
- The office where the form was filed.
Note: For Form I-730 cases, applicants will need to know at which USCIS international office the beneficiary will be interviewed.
Please note that updates about not every form type processed by a USCIS International Operations field or headquarters office is made available. Instead, processing times for only the following forms are available online:
- Forms I-130,
- Forms I-131, and
- Forms I-730
Further, if the USCIS office completed fewer than 10 cases of one of these form types during the reported period, the average processing time will not be displayed.
