This past March, USCIS announced that it was extending the amount of time certain individuals had to respond to agency requests. Of course, this was due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as many applicants and petitioners simply could not respond due to the outbreak. Now, USCIS has just announced that it will be further extending the amount of time individuals have to respond to various agency requests, including the following:
- Requests for Evidence
- Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14)
- Filing date requirements for Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings
- Filing date requirements for Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.
- Notices of Intent to Deny
- Notices of Intent to Revoke
- Notices of Intent to Rescind and Notices of Intent to Terminate regional investment centers
That being said, you should note that the flexibility only applies to the aforementioned documents if the issuance date is between March 1 and Sept. 11, 2020. Once you respond, USCIS will consider that response within 60 calendar days after the date established in the request or notice.
