USCIS COVID-19 UPDATE

On March 18, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) temporarily suspended routine in-person services to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). USCIS plans to begin reopening their offices on or after June 4, unless the public closures are extended further. USCIS staff are continuing to perform duties that do not involve face-to-face contact with the public. However, USCIS will provide emergency services for limited situations. To schedule an emergency appointment, contact the USCIS Contact Center.

During this time, individuals may still submit applications and petitions to USCIS. Online filing remains the most convenient and interactive way to submit forms, check the status of your case, and receive notices.

USCIS will provide further updates as the situation develops and will continue to follow CDC guidance. Please visit the USCIS Response to COVID-19 webpage for more information.
