US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that it will reuse previously submitted biometrics to process extension requests for employment authorization (Form I-765) during the temporary closure of Application Support Centers (ASC).
What to Expect?
USCIS will reuse previously submitted biometrics if applicants:
- Have filed a Form I-765 extension application, or
- Have a scheduled biometrics appointment with an ASC office on or after March 18, 2020 for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) extension application
Please note: This measure will remain in effect until ASC offices re-open for public appointments. We will continue to provide-up-to-date coronavirus-related changes to USCIS policy, such ASC office closures.
