U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is readying individual domestic offices to reopen to the public on or after June 4, after it suspended routine in-person services to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In offices that remain closed to the public, USCIS staff are continuing to perform duties that do not involve face-to-face contact with the public. However, those offices will provide emergency services in limited situations. To request an emergency appointment, contact the USCIS Contact Center.
USCIS offices will gradually and safely resume in-person services, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines to protect our workforce and the public. USCIS offices will implement social distancing and workplace controls that prioritize the health and safety of employees and the public. Appointment notices will contain information on safety precautions that visitors to USCIS facilities must follow.
Online filing remains the most convenient and interactive way to submit forms, check the status of your case, and receive notices.
USCIS will provide further updates to this page as the situation develops and will continue to follow CDC guidance.
