USCIS Extends Office Closing Term for Third Time Due to Coronavirus: New Date
From March 18, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) suspended services at their offices, asylum offices, and immigrant support centers until April 1 to help slow down the spread of coronavirus. On March 25, the first extension of the closing dates was announced. On April 1, the service announced that the opening date was again rescheduled.
USCIS offices will be open on May 4 unless public closure orders are expanded. It was originally about closing to 1 April, then - to 7 April. Reportedly, office employees continue to provide services that do not require personal contact with visitors.
USCIS will continue to provide limited emergency services. To receive them, call Contact center.
USCIS will send notifications to applicants about scheduled meetings and naturalization ceremonies. USCIS offices will send interview cancellation notifications and automatically transfer the interview to asylum.
After postponing the interview, asylum seekers will receive a new notification of the interview indicating the new time, date and place of the interview.
When USCIS resumes normal operation, appointments will be automatically rescheduled - everyone will receive meeting letters in the mail. Persons who had InfoPass or other appointments should reschedule their appointments through USCIS Contact Centeras soon as field offices are reopened to the public. Please check if your local branch is open before contacting the contact center.
