The green card backlog is barely moving in September


The State Department National Visa Center (NVC) experienced a slight change in immigrant visa (IV) backlog, from 275,506 in August to 273,263 in September, a decrease of 0.8%.

The number of green card applicants whose files were documented and ready to be called for an interview decreased slightly, from 314,853 in August to 312,018 in September (a decrease of 0.9%). A case considered “documentally complete” is one in which all required forms and documents have been submitted and accepted by the NVC, and the case is therefore ready for scheduling an interview.
