The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) stated that it has experienced a tremendous increase in the number of applications filed, which has resulted in a front log of cases awaiting data-entry. USCIS is putting in every effort to deal with the delay.

USCIS will be prioritizing data entry for specific form-types. Change of Status or Extension of Stay eligibility will not be affected due to delay in data entry and fee receipting, assuming all other eligibility requirements are satisfied. USCIS assured its customers that requests for Premium Processing Service will continue to be processed within 15 days, consistent with existing policies and procedures.

The actual received date will be honored and recorded on the receipt notice. This date will appear in the “Received Date” box on Form I-797, Notice of Action. The received date on Form I-797 is different from the “Notice Date,” which also appears on the Notice and identifies the date the receipt notice was actually generated.

USCIS will provide weekly updates to give its customers accurate information about current receipt times and service level commitments. USCIS has completed data entry and has issued receipt notices for applications and petitions received on or before the following dates:
