What is a USCIS receipt number?

USCIS assigns a 13-character case number (receipt number) to each application. Here is an example: SRC-06-012-54321. Omit any dashes or spaces in the number when checking case status. For example, you would enter SRC0601254321. However, enter all other characters, including asterisks (*), if they are part of the receipt number.

Where can I find my USCIS case number?

Your case number is printed on the I-797 receipt notice from USCIS.
