Processing Times and Status Checks

Processing Times for immigration matters vary widely.  The U.S. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. Department of Labor, and the U.S. Department of State provide a number of resources available to check on the status of your application.  Click on the appropriate application category to the left to check on average wait times for cases of your type and, for some categories, the status of your individual application.  We also provide resources to check what office you should use to file certain applications and processing times for Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests.  You may wish to check back regularly, as these processing times can change.

Dear Sir,

I am a Professor of international repute, my age is 56 years, and I live in Delhi-Greater Noida area. I wish to apply for Green Card under category EB-1A for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability in an individual capacity. My question is:

Can I file I-140 Petition at US Embassy in New Delhi? Can I file I-140 on-line (the form is NOT available at USCIS portal)?
