Check My Immigrant Visa Petition Status

On this page:


To check the status of your immigrant petition:

  • If your petition has not yet been approved by USCIS, please visit the USCIS website. You must enter your application receipt number, which is a 13-digit receipt number starting with EAC, WAC, LIN or SRC, followed by numbers.
  • If USCIS has approved your petition, and notified you that it has been forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC), please contact NVC.
  • If NVC has notified you that your case has been transferred to the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou, you will receive further instructions from the Consulate. Please note that cases normally take three months to reach the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou from NVC.
