USCIS Offices Prepare to Reopen June 4
USCIS announced last Friday that it is presently readying offices to reopen on or after June 4, 2020. USCIS temporarily suspended all in-person services at its field offices, asylum offices, and application support centers beginning March 18, to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Employees in these offices are continuing to perform mission-essential services that do not require face-to-face contact with the public while the offices are closes.
Although the offices remain closed, USCIS is continuing to provide limited emergency in-person services. Individuals with an emergency need are advised to contact the USCIS contact center for assistance.
USCIS field offices will continue to send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies impacted by the temporary closure. Once USCIS resumes in-person services, USCIS will automatically reschedule appointments. Individuals will receive new appointments by mail. Individuals with infopass appointments must reschedule through the USCIS contact center once field offices reopen to the public.
Berardi Immigration Law will continue to monitor this and keep our clients informed of any changes. If you have questions on how COVID-19 may impact your immigration matter, be sure to contact us today!
