What is the longest it takes to receive the work authorization card after biometrics ?

Aurora, IL |

My brother had his biometrics appointment before me and I already got everything including my SSN and he has not yet even received the work authorization card. He has been in initial review since November 25, 2012. I am just really concerned and want to know what can be the issue.

  1. What did your brother apply for? In USCIS-land, a processing time of several months is very common for many applications, so there is probably no need for concern.
