Hi,

I am from the Philadelphia region. I should be able to apply for my I-140 in a week or so. Does anyone know approximately how long it would take me if I applied the NON-Premium way?

Thanks

This depends on the service center treating your case. Mine took less than three months at Texas Service Center.

ive seen a minimum of a month to six months max as an average. but it could still vary as said by others and also depends if you get any RFE etc. thanks

I am in Philadelphia so i would assume Vermont center. Is that a fair assumption, coz i have a previous I-140 and to the best of my knowledge it had gone to the Vermont center back then.

However back in the day there was no premium processing for I-140 so things may have changed :(

Has anyone in the North east USA recently received any approvals from the Vermont center?

140s are done in Nebraska or Texas now.

It is only either Nebraska or Texas now. No other centers process I-140. For Texas center, it is appx 1 to 3 months. But for Nebraska, it is anytime from 6 - 9 months.

My friend's I-140 was field in Oct. It was filed at VT, but finally got transferred to TX. I-140 got approved in just 10 business days.
This is a surprise for us.

How do cases get assigned to NSC or Texas?

Is it possible to file 140 at a particular center? or is it based on jurisdiction etc?

Thanks for replying. Were the I-140s EB2 or EB3? Coz i have seen a LOT of EB2s taking significantly more time than Eb3.

For eg. I filed for labour in Jan and it already got approved thru PERM coz it was EB3. a couple of my friends have filed in EB2 aand have waited significantly longer.

Nebrasaka takes anywhere between 3 to 8 months. Texas takes anywhere from 12 days (in my case) to 2 months.
Texas is much faster.
