Coronavirus Update: USCIS Temporary Office Closure Extended Until at least May 3

By April 1, 2020March 29th, 2021COVID-19

On March 17, 2020, USCIS temporarily suspended in-person services at its field offices, asylum offices, and application support centers (ASC) to help slow the spread of the COVID-19. The initial suspension was until April 1, this date has now been extended to May 3. USCIS will continue to assess the situation and extend the closure further if necessary. This includes interviews, naturalization ceremonies, and biometric collection appointments.

USCIS field offices will send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies impacted by the extended 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 office closure. Applicants will receive reschedule notices 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. If you are currently in the U.S. on ESTA, please read our blog post on Satisfactory departure during Coronavirus when you click here.
