Check My Immigrant Visa Petition Status

On this page:


Overview

To check the status of your immigrant petition, visit the USCIS website here. You must enter your application receipt number, which is a 13-digit receipt number starting with EAC, WAC, LIN or SRC, followed by numbers.

Embassy Appointment

If you have an interview date, you must appear at the Embassy on the date of your appointment. You should arrive at the Consulate fifteen minutes before your appointment. Please read about security restrictions at the Consulate that describe what you can and cannot bring with you to your interview. You should bring your appointment letter and all required documents.

It is very important for you to be well prepared for the interview and to have all of your documents.

You must bring the originals of the documents listed on the following pages to the visa interview. The following page is a checklist of all necessary documents for your use. Refer to the accompanying notes for a detailed description of each document and suggestions as to how to obtain it.

If you are unable to obtain the required documents in time, please reschedule your interview. If you are missing documents when you come to the Embassy for your interview, the processing of your case will be significantly delayed and you will not receive a visa until the documents are processed.

Note that no one can assure you in advance that the visa will be issued. The approved immigrant petition does not mean that a visa will automatically be issued. An approved immigrant visa petition signifies that the applicant has demonstrated a relationship with an American citizen or legal permanent resident that qualifies the applicant to apply for an immigrant visa. It is the purpose of the visa interview to determine whether the applicant is eligible under U.S. law to receive the visa.

Please do not make plans to depart Honduras or buy plane tickets before your visa is issued. If you receive a visa, you will have six months to travel to the U.S.
