USCIS Updates Naturalization Processing Times

Murali Bashyam

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will finish more than one million naturalization cases during fiscal year 2008. The agency also recently updated the expected time it will take to complete naturalization cases, projecting processing times averaging 13-15 months. That’s a three month improvement from the 16-18 month projection that USCIS made six months ago. The USCIS has stated a goal of improving their processing of these cases by adding nearly 3000 new employees, detailing employees to work in the most heavily affected offices, quadrupling the funding for overtime and using Asylum Office facilities and staff to conduct naturalization interviews. Last year alone, USCIS received a record 1.4 million naturalization applications.
As more information becomes available on naturalization processing and processing times, we will post it here at
