Why are there Visa processing delays?

Why is your case taking so long? USCIS processing delays remain at crisis levels.

Why hasn’t your case been decided yet? Lentini Visas | Immigration Services, Law Office of Jacqueline Lentini LLC | Why are there Visa processing delays?

Millions of families, businesses and individuals are applying for immigration benefits through the USCIS – U.S, Citizenship and Immigration Services to process and approve applications and petitions.

In just six years the processing time has grown from 5 months to 9 months, slowing business operations and keeping families separated.

Who is Affected?

Anyone who files applications or petitions with the USCIS is affected. Processing time has increased even though there has been a decrease in cases.

Why are cases taking longer?

  • There have been changes in policy due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
  • Fingerprinting requirement for certain I-539 applicants.
  • Some I-765 applications cannot be adjudicated before biometrics are taken.

What can I do?

  •  Ensure your lawyer has your current contact information.
  • Work with your lawyer to file paperwork as early as allowed.
  • Expect extra time.
