Immigrant Visa Interview-Ready Backlog Report from DOS

U.S. embassies and consulates abroad provide routine visa services to thousands of applicants daily. We are committed to resolving the immigrant visa backlog and transparently sharing the current status of our worldwide visa operations.

Number of IV applicants whose cases are documentarily complete at NVC and ready for interview as of February 29, 2024


Number of documentarily complete IV applicants scheduled for March 2024 interview appointments


Number of eligible IV applicants still pending the scheduling of an interview after March 2024 appointment scheduling was completed


These numbers change regularly through our ongoing effort to reduce the backlog; they will be outdated soon after they are published each month.

Applicants should be as prepared as possible for their interview by bringing all required valid documents. Being fully prepared will not only speed up the interview but also help the Department more efficiently reduce the number of those waiting for an interview appointment.
