You can find the status of pending applications, petitions, and cases mailed, submitted or processed at a USCIS service center, and for submitted, electronically submitted through USCIS.

Pending Application Receipt Number

USCIS pending immigration applications or cases have a 13 character application receipt number. This receipt number is usually found on any notices sent by the USCIS to applicants with pending immigration cases. The 13 character immigration receipt number is very important in order to be able to check the status of your case. This receipt number usually starts with three letters like SRC, EAC, WAC or LIN. This guide explains step by step how to check your case status online, by phone or by mail, or how to receive case updates by e-mail or text message. In order to find a receipt number for a pending immigration case the applicant may call the USCIS National Customer Service to inquire about the receipt number.

InfoPass appointment

If USCIS customer service representatives over the phone cannot help you with the information you need on a pending application, or if you have an urgent matter, such as a personal emergency, you can schedule an appointment with InfoPass and travel in person to your local office USCIS to find out about your case.

InfoPass is free, a free service for making an appointment with USCIS over the Internet. InfoPass is available to the public online in 12 different languages.
