On March 18, 2020, USCIS made the decision to temporarily close all in-person services, outside of emergency situations, to deter the spread of the new coronavirus. Unfortunately for many non-citizens, this puts their immigration status in limbo until further notice. That being said, USCIS has recently extended these closures even further, now stating that all USCIS in-person services will be suspended until May 3. However, based on the state of the country, as we only begin to approach the apex of COVID-19 in many states, we advise non-citizens to brace themselves for an even further extension on closures as we approach the May 3 target date. However, USCIS offices are still conducting “mission-essential services” that do not demand direct contact with individuals, so if you believe you qualify for emergency services or a mission-essential service, please do not hesitate to contact our firm or the USCIS contact center for assistance.
Furthermore, if you are someone who has an applicant or petitioner, and your appointments or naturalization ceremony were recently postponed due to COVID-19, you should receive a notice by mail from USCIS pertaining to your cancellation, in addition to a rescheduled asylum interview date. You should also note that once USCIS reopens, it will automatically reschedule all ASC appointments, of which you will receive a new appointment date in the mail. That being said, all those with InfoPass or other appointments with USCIS will have to reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center once field offices reopen.
