How can I check the status of my U.S. citizenship application?

When applying for U.S. citizenship, applicants are required to complete and submit Form N-400 - Application for U.S. Citizenship. If Form N-400 has been duly filed, USCIS will initially respond by mailing a letter, approximately 2-3 weeks after filing, that confirms receipt of the application. The receipt letter is formally known as Form I-797C, Notice of Action. However, if Form N-400 has not been properly filed, USCIS may send a Notice of Action to reject the petition or may send a Request for Evidence that requires additional items and/or documentation.

Form I-797C, Notice of Action contains a receipt number that is necessary to check the application status. Without an application receipt number, applicants will not be able to access their case status information. To track an application or petition (also referred to as “case”), applicants need to go to the My Case Status page on the USCIS website. They will need their 13-character receipt number which can be found on your receipt notice. It begins with three letters such as (EAC, WAC, LIN, or SRC). Please note that dashes (“-“) should be omitted when entering a receipt number.
