Could Moving Help You Get a Green Card Faster?


USCIS field office processing times vary widely by location

Apr 13, 2018

Moving could help you get a green card or citizenship faster—in some cases by more than half a year.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently published new data about wait times for two of the most important immigration forms: green card applications (Form I-485), and applications for U.S. citizenship (Form N-400).

Here at Boundless, we analyzed this data and created an infographic to highlight the wide differences in application processing times across various USCIS field offices—particularly in Southern Florida, where these field offices aren’t that far apart.

You can use this tool from USCIS to check wait times in your own location.Immigration application processing times in Florida
