Check My Immigrant Visa Petition Status

To check the status of your immigrant petition:

  • If your petition has not yet been approved by USCIS, please visit the USCIS website. You must enter your application receipt number, which is a 13-digit receipt number starting with EAC, WAC, LIN or SRC, followed by numbers.
  • If USCIS has approved your petition, and notified you that it has been forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC), please contact NVC.
  • If your petitioner and/or the authorized agent have/has received an interview appointment letter from the National Visa Center (NVC), please prepare the required documents for the interview and attend the interview as per scheduled date and time mentioned on the interview letter received from NVC. Please note that cases normally take several weeks to reach the immigrant visa section in the consular section.
