You can now use the myProgress program to track the potential wait times for your EAD and Advance Parole applications


On July 12, USCIS announced that the myProgress program has been extended to include Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization) and Form I-131 (Application for Travel Document).

The myProgress program provides users with estimated wait times for specific immigration processes in the United States. By accessing your online account, you can view personalized estimates for the various stages of processing, including the final decision on your case. It’s important to note that these dates are only estimates and not guarantees. The actual processing time may vary.

Currently, myProgress is available for individuals who file the following forms:

  • Form N-400 (Application for Naturalization)
  • Form I-90 (Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card)
  • Form I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative)

To view the estimated timelines, you must have a USCIS online account. If you file the form electronically or link it using an online code, you will find the relevant information under the myProgress tab for that application. The myProgress tab provides details such as confirmation of receipt, the status of biometrics appointments (if applicable), and the decision on your pending case.

If you wish to request processing times outside of the normal timeframe, please check the Case Processing Times webpage to confirm your eligibility.

The announcement is attached as below.


USCIS Expands myProgress to Form I-765 and Form I-131

Release Date: 07/12/2023

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced today that we are expanding myProgress (formerly known as personalized processing times) to Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and Form I-131, Application for Travel Document.

myProgress provides applicants with access, in their online account, to personalized estimates of their wait time for major milestones on their case, including their final case decision. While estimates are based on historical patterns of cases with similar specifics, they are not a guarantee of speed, cannot take into consideration all possible unique application processing delays, and may over- or underestimate the true processing time.

In addition to Form I-765 and Form I-131, myProgress is available for applicants with a USCIS online account who file Form N-400, Application for Naturalization; Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card; or Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative.

To view estimated case timelines, applicants must first create a USCIS online account or log into their account and select their pending application. If they e-filed or linked one of the applicable forms to their online account using an online access code, they will see a myProgress tab for their application. The myProgress tab displays the estimated wait time until their case has a decision, along with a checkmark beside three milestones as they are completed:

  • Confirmation that the application was received;
  • Biometric services appointment (if required) has been completed; and
  • The decision on the pending case.

Applicants will still need to visit the public Check Case Processing Times webpage to determine if they are eligible to file an Outside of Normal Processing Times service request.
