Does anyone know how long it takes to get a RTD these days? Last time I applied for mine was in 2018 and it took just about 5 weeks. I applied for citizenship 6 months ago and haven't heard from USCIS ever since. Don't know if it's worth applying for a RTD so I can travel or it's worth to just wait it out until I get my citizenship.

I applied for mine on March 2020 and go it in December 2020. So about 10 months, lol. It was my 2nd one, too.

I applied RTD in September 2020 and I havent get any update, this is my 3rd RTD I applied, the first and second one took 2,5 months. I think this has to do with Trump administration slowing things down, also Covid, 35,000 USCIS employees were furlough! Hopefully this year will be faster and better with Biden adminstration.

My last RTD took 120 or so days to be approved. I shared my adventures waiting for it here on the forum. https://forums.immigration.com/threads/rtd-tracker.341558/

At naturalization, they only ask for the green card to be surrendered, not the RTD. So, I still have my RTD, but it expires this month. I never got to use it because of the pandemic. Even if there was no pandemic, wouldn't have used it because I got the ten-year US passport after naturalization.
