USCIS Extends Deadlines for Submitting Responses to Some Requests for Evidence and Notices of Intent

To assist applicants and minimize the immigration consequences for petitioners/applicants seeking immigration benefits during COVID-19 pandemic, USCIS has eased some evidentiary burdens.

Applicants and petitioners are now provided an option to submit responses to requests for evidence (RFEs) and notices of intent to deny (NOIDs) issued between March 1 and May 1, 2020, within 60 days after the response deadline set forth in the RFE or NOID. All such notices issued before March 1, 2020, are not affected by this policy. Moreover, other deadlines, such as noting an appeal (Form I-290B), for filing for extensions of status/work authorization are also unaffected.

USCIS states will continue to follow CDC guidance and provide further updates as the situation develops.
