Due to the coronavirus, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offices are closed to the public.
USCIS has suspended routine in-person services until at least April 1, 2020 to help slow the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). USCIS staff will continue to perform duties that do not involve contact with the public. This means that the service centers will continue to process nonimmigrant petitions such as H1B and L petitions. It also means that the H1B random lottery will take place later this month. However, for those individuals with an interview appointment notice, a biometrics appointment, or a naturalization ceremony, those are cancelled for the time being. To read more, click here.
USCIS will send notices with instructions to applicants and petitioners with scheduled interview appointments or naturalization ceremonies impacted by this closure. They will automatically be rescheduled once normal operations resume. Individuals who had InfoPass appointments with a Field Office must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center (click here).
