On June 4, 2020, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin reopening some field offices and application support centers (ASCs) to the public and resume non-emergency face-to-face services. USCIS offices were temporarily closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

USCIS will follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines. They will establish measures to protect their workforce and the public when facilities reopen.

what to expect

  • USCIS will send reschedule notices to those with previously cancelled appointments, interviews, and naturalization ceremonies.
  • USCIS will automatically reschedule any necessary ASC appointments that were canceled due to temporary office closure.
  • Reschedule notices will contain information on safety precautions that visitors must follow when entering USCIS facilities.
  • Individuals with other appointment types  can reschedule if their local USCIS office has reopened.
  • USCIS will continue to provide emergency services on a limited basis while some offices remain temporarily closed.

We will continue to monitor and share COVID-19 related updates to USCIS policy.
