USCIS Extends Temporary Office Closure to April 7

March 25, 2020

USCIS announced that in an effort to protect employees and communities, USCIS field offices, asylum offices, and Application Support Centers, will now remain closed until April 7, 2020, not April 1, 2020 as previously announced. This date is subject to further extension.


USCIS announced that it is suspending in-person services at its field offices, asylum offices, and Application Support Centers (ASCs) in response to COVID-19. The suspension is effective March 18 until at least April 1. Those needing assistance with emergency services should call the USCIS Contact Center.

USCIS field offices will send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies impacted by this closure. USCIS asylum offices will send interview cancellation notices and automatically reschedule asylum interviews.

USCIS is also postponing all in-person public engagement and outreach events for the duration of the closure. View additional information about the office closure from USCIS's Office of Public Affairs by clicking on the button below:
