How do you check the status of your pending immigration case? Do you have to pay a lawyer to do so? No, you can do it yourself either online or by telephone.
If your case is pending in a USCIS Service Center, you have been selected as a winner in the DV Lottery, you have applied for a U.S. Passport, you have a J waiver request pending before the State Department or you have applied for a copy of your file under the Freedom of Information Act, you can check your immigration case status online. You can also check the visa waiting times at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate anywhere in the world.
You can stay up-to-date with the waiting times in the Visa Bulletin by subscribing to our Free E-Mail Newsletter.
