It will take approximately 11 years if you are from any country other than Mexico or the Philippines. For those two countries the wait is 15 to 20 years. Since your petition was filed in January 2001, you will have to wait another 1 or 2 years before your priority date is current, if you not from Mexico or the Philippines.
