Case Processing Times

Information about case processing times is available on the USCIS site for various applications. You can find the processing time by providing your application type and field office location. Here are the processing times for naturalization and citizenship applications at the Fort Meyers office:

  • Naturalization (N-400): 8 months to 13 months
  • Certificate of Citizenship (N-600): 6.5 months to 16 months
  • Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322 (N-600K): 6.5 months to 25.5 months

Note that these times indicate how long it takes to process the majority of the cases. The case of some applicants may take longer than the shown time.

Outside Normal Processing Time

The processing times provided by USCIS are based on historical data. For each form type, the agency also provides a date for case inquiry (on the same page as the processing time). If your “Receipt Date” comes earlier than the case inquiry date, then your case is outside the normal processing duration. In this case, you can obtain information by submitting a request it online.

Self-Service Tools

The USCIS encourages you to use their official website. The site covers topics like immigration options, citizenship, and green card in detail. There’s also a section containing how-to guides and the procedures before and after filing. Besides this information, the site also has different self-service tools, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Immigration options tool: This tool takes your current status (citizen, non-citizen, etc.) and your goal (work, citizenship, etc.) to show the options for U.S. immigration you may have.
  • Case status checker: This tool helps you track the progress of your application, request, or petition. It asks for your 13-character Recipient Number.
  • Online application: The USCIS online filing system enables you to file many different forms. At present, these form types include N-600, N-600K, N-400, N-565, N-336, I-765, I-539, I-130, I-90, G-639, and AR-11. Visit the following page for more information.

Visiting Guidelines

Besides making an appointment, there are also some other guidelines for visiting a field office. For instance, it’s against policy to record a video or audio or take a photo inside the office. (Exception to this policy is a naturalization ceremony). Also, federal law does not allow weapons inside the office, even if you have a permit for that weapon. The timings are also something to check beforehand – office timings may be different on that day because of an unusual or unexpected event.
