How long after USCIS receives the I-526 application will I receive my case number?

What is the current duration between the point when USCIS receives the I-526 package until a case number is issued?

    Should be 7 to 14 days, but slightly longer than that is not uncommon.

    We usually receive receipt notices with case numbers within 2-4 weeks of the case receipt by USCIS.

    Once you have filed your EB-5 petition on Form I-526, you will receive your case number from USCIS within, approximately, 2 weeks.

    It usually takes about one week, give or take a few days.

    USCIS issues the Receipt notice with the case number within about two weeks after filing. You are able to track what is happening with your case with the case number on the USCIS website. Although the website is not always updated timely and may contain errors, it is one of the tools you could utilize to keep up with your case.

    Your WAC number will arrive with your Receipt. However, your investment immigration attorney can use the canceled check to get you a quick answer as the number will be printed on the back of the canceled check.
