How long do CBP One appointments take?

One way to legally enter the United States is through the CBP One electronic appointment system. Launched in May this year, it is a way to claim asylum at the southern border, which also has a very high approval rate. The problem now is the timing of the appointment.

The proposed asylum designation program through CBP One application has raised many questions among willing immigrants, including Cubans seeking protection in the United States. One of the main questions is why you have to wait so long to get an appointment.

According to the US government, from where they issued reports this week, the answer is that there is more demand than capacity to meet the demands.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official explained The program started with a limit of 1,000 appointments per day and has been increased to 1,450, allowing it to process more than 40,000 applications per month.

However, this is insufficient to meet all the needs of immigrants who wish to present themselves before a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the southern border.
