Case Processing Times

It may take the office months to process your case, so it’s useful to have an idea of the average processing times. The USCIS calculates these times based on recent data and updates them online on their official site. Here are the processing times for two citizenship and a naturalization application at the Washington field office:

  • N-600 (Certificate of Citizenship) (N-600): 6.5 to 16 months
  • N-600K (Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322): 6.5 to 25.5 months
  • N-400 (Naturalization): 12 to 15 months

The format of the processing times you receive will also depend on form type. The USCIS has selected some form types for the time range format given above. In this format, the first figure gives you the months for concluding half of the applications, while the second one is the time for finishing 93% of the applications.

Case Processing Information

Besides the times, you can use the USCIS site to find other information, including the status of your case, the date for case inquiry, how to submit an online inquiry, etc.

There’s a simple tool for checking the status of your case or request. It asks for your Receipt Number to provide you the required information. (The USCIS provides a 13-character number for each application.)

On the same page as the processing time for your case, you’ll find the date for the case inquiry and instructions on when you should submit an inquiry.

If your case is delayed for some reason, you can inquire about it online from the following section. The same page also has links for making other inquiries, such as an inquiry for a missing message.

The USCIS encourages customers to use the online tools and resources for information. According to the agency, the case status tool provides the same information you’ll receive by contacting the center. However, if you have an issue that requires live assistance, you can call the toll-free number 800-375-5283 if you are in the U.S. or 212-620-3418 if you’re outside. The timings are 8:00-20:00 Eastern, Mon-Fri.

Another source of information is the online bot called Emma. Available in English and Spanish, the automated service uses the words you enter to show topics and she can also speak the written information.
