Is Your Work Permit Delayed? You're not alone
The American Immigration Lawyer's Association has received numerous reports from its members regarding the delayed adjudication of Forms I-765, Application for Employment Authorization (Work Permits) and Forms I-131, Application for Advance Parole (Travel Permits).
Reports indicate that Work Permit applications are taking approximately 4.5 to 5+ months to process, though some have reported Work Permit applications are taking nearly 7 months to process. Travel Permit applications are taking as long as 5 months to process. The American Immigration Lawyer's Assoc. is raising this issue with USCIS and is hopeful it will be able to report back new information and updates as soon as possible.
