Obtaining Your Immigration Case Information

How do I obtain my latest immigration case information?

This is only for individuals who have currently pending immigration cases. 

In this week’s newsletter, we will provide how to obtain your updated immigration case status via the EOIR’s Automatic Case Information System.

Since the pandemic, many immigration cases have been postponed multiple times, and around 1.5 million cases are pending before our nation’s immigration courts. (According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of Syracuse University)

Moreover, as of January 2022, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, the Immigration Courts (EOIR) have postponed certain hearings.

What do I need?

A-Number. To obtain your updated case information, you will need to provide your A-number or Alien-number. The A-Number begins with the letter “A” followed by an eight or nine-digit number. This number is printed in all United States Department of Homeland Security (ICE / USCIS) and Executive Office for Immigration Review correspondence.

You can also find this number of your Work Permit (EAD) or your Notice To Appear (NTA).


Once you enter your a-number and click Submit, you will obtain a similar result.

The Automated Case Information System will provide you with the information on your next hearing and location and any decision and motion information.

If you still have questions, you can always call your local immigration court; their contact information can be found below.
