Today USCIS announced that it would continue to suspend in-person services at USCIS field offices, asylum offices, and application support centers (ASCs) until May 4th to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. USCIS stated that it would closely monitor public closures throughout this time, and that this suspension will be dependent on developing information.
Employees in these offices are continuing to perform mission-essential services that do not require face-to-face contact with the public.
If you are seeking emergency services, please contact the USCIS Contact Center for assistance with these services. USCIS will continue to provide limited emergency services throughout this time.
USCIS field offices will send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies impacted by the extended temporary closure. USCIS asylum offices will send interview cancellation notices and automatically reschedule asylum interviews. When the interview is rescheduled, asylum applicants will receive a new interview notice with the new time, date and location of the interview.
When USCIS again resumes normal operations, USCIS will automatically reschedule ASC appointments due to the temporary office closure. You will receive a new appointment letter in the mail. Individuals who had InfoPass or other appointments must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center once field offices are open to the public again. Please check to see if the office in your jurisdiction has been reopened before reaching out to the USCIS Contact Center.
