USCIS Releases Projected Naturalization Processing Times For Local Offices

VIA USCIS

Washington—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services (USCIS) released today the projected times for local offices
to complete processing of applications for citizenship from individuals
who filed during the summer of 2007.

 

Last July, USCIS
received 460,000 applications for naturalization. That was three times
the record for any previous month. For the year, USCIS received 1.4
million naturalization applications, almost double the normal annual
volume.

 

USCIS is hiring and training hundreds of
additional immigration officers to adjudicate these cases. The agency
is also conducting naturalization interviews on weekends, after normal
business hours and in additional locations.

 

The
processing times listed below provide a sense of how quickly a case may
be processed if there are no complicating factors. Still, some cases
will take longer to complete for such reasons as:

  • an applicant has been asked to submit additional information and their case is pending until they comply, or
  • an applicant fails the naturalization test and has 60 days to prepare before they are retested, or
  • the FBI name check is still in progress.
