USCIS Expands myProgress to Form I-765 and Form I-131

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) recently announced the expansion of the myProgress tab (formerly known as personalized processing times) to Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and Form I-131, Application for Travel Document.

The myProgress tab provides applicants with access, in their USCIS online account, to personalized estimates of their wait time for major milestones on their case(s), including their final case decision. These estimates are based on historical patterns of cases with similar specifics. However, it is important to note that they are not guarantees of processing speed and may not account for all unique application processing delays.

In addition to Form I-765 and Form I-131, myProgress is available for applicants with a USCIS online account who file Form N-400, Application for Naturalization; Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card; or Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative.

To access myProgress to view estimated case timelines, applicants must first create a USCIS online account or log into their account and select their pending application. If they e-filed or linked one of the applicable forms to their online account using an online access code, they will see a myProgress tab for their application. The myProgress tab displays the estimated wait time until their case has a decision, along with a checkmark beside three milestones as they are completed:

  • Confirmation that the application was received;
  • Biometric services appointment (if required) has been completed; and
  • The decision on the pending case.

It’s important to note that while myProgress provides valuable insights, applicants should still check the public Check Case Processing Times webpage to determine eligibility for filing an “Outside of Normal Processing Times” service request. This additional step ensures that applicants are aware of any potential delays and can take appropriate action if necessary.

Overall, USCIS’s myProgress aims to improve transparency and provide applicants with a better understanding of their case processing times, allowing them to stay informed and plan accordingly during the immigration process.
