27 May USCIS Preparing for In-Person Services to the Public on June 4, 2020 (Expect Delays)
Washington, D.C., May 27, 2020: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is readying individual domestic offices to reopen on or after June 4. See our web alert for information on field offices, asylum offices, application support centers and naturalization ceremonies.
USCIS is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines to protect our workforce and the public. For the latest information on the status of individual offices, check our office closures page. While certain offices are temporarily closed, USCIS continues to provide limited emergency in-person services. Please call the USCIS Contact Center for assistance with emergency services if your assigned office remains closed.
As services begin to reopen, offices will reduce the number of appointments and interviews to ensure social distancing and allow time for cleaning and reduce waiting room occupancy. Appointment notices will contain information on safety precautions that visitors to USCIS facilities must follow. Read our COVID-19 Visitor Policy for more information on visiting USCIS facilities.
If you are feeling sick, please do not come to the office. Follow the instructions on your appointment notice to reschedule your appointment for when you are healthy. There is no penalty for rescheduling your appointment if you are sick.
