Checking Your Case Status Online

Frequently, our customers ask us how to verify their case status.  It is a very simple process. You can verify your case status online from your home or office, even from your cell phone!

You only have to access USCIS’ Case Status Online directly through uscis.gov.


You’ll find Case Status Online link on www.uscis.gov/es

The Case Status Online landing page shows other quick reference online tools, such as how to change your address online, how to submit an inquiry about your case (e-Request), case processing times, and how to locate a USCIS office, which we will cover in an upcoming Compás posting.

To check your case status using our online tool, you have to have your case receipt number. This receipt number is a unique 13-character identifier that USCIS provides for each application or petition it receives, and it’s used to identify and track its cases.  The receipt number consists of three letters followed by 10 numbers. For example, the letters can be EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC, NBC, MSC or IOE. You can find it on notices of action USCIS has sent you.

Case Status Online landing page. We encourage you to read USCIS privacy act statement, which appears under the “check status” button, before checking your case status.

When entering your receipt number, you should omit dashes (”-“), but you can include all other characters, including asterisks (“*”) if they are listed on your notice as part of the receipt number.

Enter your receipt number. Omit the dashes, but include all other characters including asterisks if they are listed don your notices as part of the receipt number.

The online system will show the last action taken in your case and will let you know the next steps, if necessary. Also, it will give you helpful reminders to keep you address current and how to submit inquiries. You’ve seen how easy and useful is checking your case status! Share this with your friends and family!

I lived in the US for 32 years and was granted a green card through the Simpson Mizzoli act. About 6 months before I relocated to Europe, I filed my application for US citizenship, I had an appointment during which I had my fingerprints taken and then never heard anything about my application. My husband who was a US citizen by birth, died the following year and since I was out of the US for more than 2 years, the local US consulate in the country where I now live, asked me to surrender my green card. I still want to become a US citizen; what do I need to do now?
