USCIS Backlog Reduction and Processing Times
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in a virtual stakeholder engagement with USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou on agency-wide backlog reduction efforts and processing times on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, from 2-3 p.m. Eastern.
COVID-19 restrictions, fiscal issues, a hiring freeze, and other factors have greatly exacerbated processing delays and backlogs, and placed burdens on applicants and petitioners. On March 29, we announced a trio of efforts that set new backlog reduction goals, expanded premium processing to additional form types, and improved timely access to employment authorization documents.
USCIS is committed to implementing new changes as efficiently as possible so applicants and petitioners receive decisions on their cases more quickly. At this engagement, Director Jaddou and USCIS leadership will discuss steps we are taking to improve processing times. We will also address participants’ questions.
