The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently confirmed that processing times for some of its application types are currently exceeding the standard processing times indicated on the USCIS website. It appears that this is the case in particular with the adjudication of H-1B petitions, EAD applications and advance parole applications. The USCIS National Customer Service Center (NCSC) will not take a status inquiry if the application being inquired about is within the USCIS current processing times. The NCSC appears to have a different set of current processing times than what is stated on the USCIS website. USCIS headquarters has indicated that it will be investigating why the NCSC has a different set of processing times than what is indicated on the USCIS website so that information provided to the public is consistent with the information that the NCSC has. However, for many years, it appears that the NCSC has had a different processing times information than the USCIS has put on its website. The USCIS has indicated that it assumes that processing times for the back-logged applications will be reduced within the next few months as the number of filings has decreased within the past few months.
