Case processing times vary with the type of application you submit. Here are the processing times at the Jacksonville USCIS office for three different applications:
- Naturalization (N-400): 7 months to 13.5 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
The processing times for these three applications are given in the form of a range. However, this is not always the case. In fact, this is a new format that the USCIS is testing.
To understand processing times further, let’s consider the example of the N-600 application at Jacksonville. The 6.5 months is how long it takes to process half of the applications, while the 16 months is the duration for processing 93% of the cases.
