USCIS GOV Status
The USCIS is the United States Customs and Immigration Service. This is the main agency that people who want to enter the United States deal with in order to be able to obtain the appropriate visas to do so.
The USCIS is the government agency that assists people who want to lawfully enter the United States. The USCIS has 18,000 people who are employed with it, thus a large government organization. It seeks to make it easy for an immigrant to transition into life in the United States, and help as many people as possible who seek to do so come to the US lawfully.
Toward the left side of the page, you will see a box labeled “Enter your receipt number,” where you can enter a 13-character number, is found on your USCIS application notices. According to the USCIS website, your case number should begin with 3 letters such as: EAC, WAC, LIN, or SRC. If your case number has dashes in it, then you should leave those out when entering them into the webpage.
Your case status will be one of the following: “Acceptance, Initial Review, Request for Evidence, Request for Evidence Response Interview, Testing and Interview, Decision, Post Decision activity, Oath Ceremony, or Card/Document Protection.” From there, you will know if your immigration status has been accepted or not, and thus whether or not you are eligible for citizenship.
If your application has been accepted, then your USCIS status will say: “accepted.” USCIS will then conduct an initial review, where a background check will be performed. If it is found you are lacking information, then there is a request for evidence made, in which there is a review period. You will be then scheduled for citizenship testing and interview by an immigration official. Your citizenship decision will then be mailed to you, and you will have your citizenship ceremony/certificate within 45 days.
