To check the status of your USCIS application and neighboring cases, enter your USCIS Receipt Number and click on "Check Status":

  • Your application receipt number is a 13-character case number starting with three letters such as SRC, LIN, EAC, or WAC. For example: SRC1090123456 would be a valid receipt number.
  • Omit any dashes while entering your receipt number. However, keep any other characters intact (including asterisks "∗") if they are part of the receipt number.
  • Your receipt number is issued to you by USCIS when your application is received, and can be found on your I-797 Receipt Notice.
  • The USCIS case status checker will display your case status, as well as the status of 10 - 20 applications adjacent to yours.
  • Please do not check an excessive number of cases within a short period of time, which burdens USCIS servers. Your IP address could be banned by USCIS for accessing the case status system repeatedly and extensively.
  • This tool does NOT come with any warranty whatsoever. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. In fact you're encouraged to check your case status at the official government website here:
