    U visa waiting time based on USCIS published data

    Hi all,

    Friday USCIS posted the updated data set for U visa applicants they received and processed. I did a quick calculation on the waiting time. Just to share so that some people might find it useful.

    if you apply in 2014, waiting time 2-3 years
    2015, 3-5 years
    2016, 5-7 years
    2017, 7-8 years

    This is the waiting time for USCIS to approve your application, deferred action might come half a year or a year earlier than this.

    if anyone wants to do the same calculation, here is the link and data

    https://www.uscis.gov/tools/reports-...migrant-status
    https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/...y2017_qtr3.pdf

    and here is my calculation:


    FY Received Approved Denied Pending Pendings are app from year pendings from each year
