USCIS Announces Expansion of myProgress to Form I-765 and Form I-131

On July 12, 2023, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the expansion of myProgress to Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and Form I-131, Application for Travel Document.

myProgress – formerly known as personalized processing times – allows applicants to access personalized estimates of their wait times for milestones in their case through the applicant’s online account. These estimates are based on historical patterns of cases with similar factors as to the applicant.

While useful as estimates, times presented on myProgress do not guarantee a speed of processing, cannot take into consideration all unique application delays, and may err in over- or underestimating the true processing time.

With the addition of Form I-765 and Form I-131, applicants with a USCIS online account can now view their processing times for those along with Form N-400, Application for Naturalization; Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative; and Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

To use myProgress, an applicant must first sign into or create their USCIS online account and then select the pending application that they either e-filed or linked to their online account using an online access code. After selecting the application, the applicant would see a myProgress tab for their application. There they will see the estimated wait time until their case has a decision, along with a checkmark alongside USCIS’ three milestones as they are completed:

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