How Do I Know Which USCIS Service Center Is Processing Your Cases

USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) is a federal agency entrusted with various citizenship and immigration services. Service centers are dispersed across diverse locations to handle various cases. To ascertain which center is handling a particular case, adhere to the following procedure.

Tracking by Receipt Number

USCIS issues a receipt to applicants upon filing applications. This receipt contains a 13-character Identification Code, utilized by USCIS for case identification and tracking. Examine the First Three Letters of the receipt number to determine the USCIS service center managing the application. The initial three letters of the receipt correspond to different centers; for instance, if the Vermont service center is handling a case, the receipt number commences with (VSC) followed by ten numerical digits.
