The time it takes the field office to decide can vary depending on the form type and location, so it’s useful to get an estimate for it from the agency. Processing information is another service that’s available online. Here are the processing times for three different forms at the Spokane field office:
- Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322 (N-600K): 10 to 22.5 months
- Certificate of Citizenship (N-600): 6.5 to 14.5 months
- Naturalization (N-400): 12 to 17.5 months
If you don’t get your times in the arrangement or style given above, that’s because the USCIS is currently trailing a new way to calculate times. The trial includes many different types of forms and the forms mentioned above are part of it. The figures represent the times for completing half and almost all (93%) of the applications.
On the same page as the time duration for your case, you can also find the exact date for case inquiries. Most of the cases are processed within the provided times but some can take longer. If the inquiry date comes after the date mentioned on your notice as the Receipt Date, then you can inquire about the delayed processing.
