There has been a dramatic backlog in green card interviews. In October, it was reported that there were 468,891 pending interviews which minimally decreased by November, with 461,125 pending interviews remaining.
The U.S. Department of State has yet to significantly increase its number of monthly interviews.
Wait times have surged since the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.
The pandemic continues to restrict the number of visas the State Department can process.
