Reopening of USCIS Offices Postponed to at least June 4
Due to the impact of COVID-19, USCIS temporarily suspended all in-person services, including interviews and biometrics collection, at its field and asylum offices and application support centers on March 18, 2020. USCIS announced that it is now preparing to reopen its offices on or after June 4. While offices are temporarily closed, USCIS continues to provide limited emergency in-person services which must be coordinated through the USCIS Contact Center.
What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals
- Field offices will send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies
- Asylum offices will send interview cancellation notices and automatically reschedule asylum interviews; applicants will receive a new interview notice with the new time, date and location
- Application Support Center (ASC) appointments, including biometrics appointments, will be automatically rescheduled when in-person services resume and individuals will receive new appointment letters in the mail
- Individuals with InfoPass or other appointments must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center once field offices are open to the public
USCIS continues to posts updates at USCIS.gov. For assistance with emergency appointments, you may contact the USCIS Contact Center.
