On March 17, 2020, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) suspended in-person services at its field offices, asylum offices, and Application Support Centers (ASCs) due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The suspension will be effective at least until April 1, 2020 [PDF version].

The USCIS will send notices to applicants and petitioners with previously scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies affected by the USCIS office closures.

USCIS asylum officers will send interview cancellation notices and automatically reschedule interviews. Asylum applicants will receive new interview notices when interviews are rescheduled.

When the USCIS offices reopen, USCIS ASCs will automatically reschedule previously scheduled appointments that were cancelled due to the temporary office closures.

Individuals who had InfoPass or other appointments must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center once USCIS offices are open to the public again.

The USCIS will continue to provide limited emergency services while the offices are closed to the public. Those who need emergency services may call the USCIS Contact Center.

We will update the site with more information on USCIS office closures when it becomes available.
