5 Ways to Speed Up Your US Immigration Processing

Submitting an immigration application can be a long and complex process especially for those applying themselves. Ultimately, there is a lot of information an applicant would need to understand before submitting a successful application. We want to help so here are 5 tips to help speed up your US immigration processing time and avoid delays!

1. Include Additional Documents/Error-Free Application

If you decide to process your US immigration application on your own, there is a lot of room for error as immigrating can be a complex process. An easy way that all applicants can do to speed up their USCIS application is to be sure the submission is error-free. Additionally, when you are asked to provide supporting documents, submit everything you have even if the number of documents needed is met. 

If you are lacking support within documents you provide or the USCIS reports an error in your application, you will receive a Request for Evidence (RFE). Receiving an RFE does not mean your application has been rejected, it just needs tweaking. We suggest trial-check your immigration application as receiving an RFE with inevitably delay your application process.

2. Pay for Premium Processing

For workers coming to the USCIS, you are given the option to pay for premium processing which is guaranteed completion within 15 calendar days. If your application isn’t processed within 15 days you will be refunded the premium processing fee and will continue with expedited processing. When seeking premium processing, you will need to determine if you are filing a Form I-907 ($1,440-$2,500) or Form I-129 ($1,440-$1,500).

3. Make a USCIS Service Request

There are many reasons why an immigration application could be delayed. In some scenarios, your application is being updated incorrectly or simply lost. In this case, it’s a great idea to contact USCIS to find more out about the status of your application. Often time this helps to speed up the process!

4. Request Expedited Processing

If you find yourself in a situation where expedited processing is vital and you aren’t able to pay for premium services, you can request expedited processing through the USCIS. The USCIS may consider this request if:

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!
