USCIS Provides Update on Office Closure

USCIS has issued an extension of office closure to the public and will continue to inform its customers. On March 18, 2020, all in person interviews and appointments were suspended through May 4, 2020. The main objective is to help in diminishing the expansion of Coronavirus (COVID19) in our country and safeguard our staff from getting infected. The plan is to re-open all USCIS offices on May 4, 2020, unless otherwise noted.

What All Services have been suspended?

Services that have been cancelled are:

  1. Face-to-face interviews
  2. Naturalization oath ceremonies
  3. Biometric/Fingerprinting appointments

Despite these challenges the world is currently facing, USCIS continues to offer emergency services and mission-essential services that do not involve exposure to the public.

Take Note of the Updates USCIS Issues

As soon as all USCIS local offices are reopened and everything is back to normal all appointments will be rescheduled. Notices will be sent to petitioners and applicants with scheduled appointments such as: biometrics, in person interviews, and oath ceremonies that have been affected by the short-term office shutdown.

Interview Cancellation notices will be sent out by USCIS asylum offices and asylum interviews will be rescheduled automatically. Applicants must be on the lookout for new interview notices that will have a new date, time and location where interviews will take place.

Appointments at the Application Support Center that were impacted by the office closures will be rescheduled immediately by USCIS. All applicants are encouraged to wait for new appointment letters via regular mail. All persons who had InfoPass or other appointments at their local field offices are required to reschedule their appointment with the USCIS Contact Center.

Further notices will be provided as there are new developments. Guidance from the CDC is being followed and taken seriously.
