USCIS Seeks to Re-Open Offices for In-Person Services in June
Due to COVID-19, USCIS field offices have been closed for in-person services since March 18, 2020. The closure will continue until on or about June 4, 2020 when USCIS hopes to re-open to the public. In preparation for re-opening:
- USCIS will send notices to applicants and petitioners with naturalization ceremonies or scheduled appointments that are affected by the temporary closure;
- Asylum offices will send cancellation notices, automatically reschedule interviews and send new interview notices;
- Once in-person operations resume, USCIS will automatically reschedule by mail cancelled Application Service Center (ASC) appointments such as biometrics appointments; and
- Those with cancelled InfoPass or other appointments at the field offices must proactively reschedule those appointments through the USCIS Contact Center once the offices re-open.
USCIS has suggested that before calling the USCIS Contact Center, applicants or petitioners should check whether their local office has re-opened by visiting www.uscis.gov/about-us/uscis-office-closings.
