The bar and estimated dates are based on the date we received your application and our processing times. Some applications take us longer than usual to process.
About 20% of our applications are more complex to process. They take us longer due to things like how easily we can verify information, how well and how quickly you answer our requests and whether the application is complete.
If it’s been longer than your processing time since you applied and you aren’t seeing updates, contact us using the Web form.
