USCIS’ Closure of Public Facing Functions Extended until at least May 3, 2020
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, USCIS has limited its public facing operations to only emergency services through May 3, 2020.
USCIS provided the following guidance:
Applicants and petitioners with scheduled interview appointments and naturalization ceremonies will receive a relevant notice.
Asylum interviews will be canceled and rescheduled automatically. Upon rescheduling a new notice specifying the new time, date and location of the interview will be issued and sent to the applicants.
Application support centers (biometrics) appointments will be automatically rescheduled, and a relevant letter will be sent via mail.
For InfoPass and other appointments rescheduling, individuals must reschedule themselves through the USCIS Contact Center for May 4, 2020 or upon resuming a normal operation of local field offices.
USCIS states it will continue to provide further updates as the situation develops.
