by | Mar 26, 2020 | Firm News |

Below are some quick updates about immigration agency closures due to COVID-19. Please note that these dates may be extended. It’s important to keep up to date by following each agency’s website or Twitter updates. Immigration attorneys will sometimes have information earlier than the general public due to liaison relationships with local agency offices.

USCIS

USCIS has closed its offices to in-person services until April 7 at the earliest. All routine interviews, biometrics appointments, naturalization swearing-in ceremonies, and other in-person services will be postponed until further notice. USCIS will be sending out notifications with the new appointment dates as soon as possible.

USCIS service centers continue to process applications.
