USCIS to Allow Phone Calls to Reschedule Biometrics Appointments

By: Angelita Chavez | May 12, 2021

By: Kevin Tung

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will now accept phone calls to reschedule biometric services appointments. Applicants, petitioners, requestors, and beneficiaries should call the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283 to reschedule. Applicants will no longer need to submit written requests to reschedule biometrics appointments. With this change, USCIS aims to make biometrics services more efficient.

Applicants must call before their appointment time and establish good cause for a reschedule request. If these conditions are not met, USCIS may deny the application, petition, or request.
