Once immigrants submit their applications, it could take between two and 10 days for the Homeland Security Department to scan and file it. It could take up to four weeks longer to make an appointment for immigrants to submit their fingerprints and take photographs.

A subsequent background check could take six more weeks then three more months for the government to make its final decision before a work permit would be issued.

Department of Human Services Secretary Napolitano has stated that immigrants would generally not be detained by immigration authorities while their application is pending.
