COVID-19: When will USCIS Offices Open & Resume Services?

by | May 27, 2020

USCIS announced today that they are preparing to reopen some domestic offices, application support centers, and asylum offices on or after June 4, 2020 for non-emergency face-to-face services.

The following precautions will be taken to protect USCIS officers and visitors (applicants):

  • Visitors may not enter a USCIS facility if they:

               1. Have any symptoms of COVID-19, including cough, fever or difficulty breathing;

                2. Have been in close contact with anyone known or suspected to have COVID-19 in the last 14 days; or

                3. Have been individually directed to self-quarantine or self-isolate by a health care provider or public health official within the last 14 days.

  • Visitors may not enter the facility more than 15 minutes prior to their appointment (30 minutes for naturalization ceremonies).
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided for visitors at entry points.
  • Members of the public must wear facial coverings that cover both the mouth and nose when entering facilities. If they do not have one, USCIS may provide one or the visitor will be asked to reschedule their appointment.
  • There will be markings and physical barriers in the facility; visitors should pay close attention to these signs to ensure they follow social distancing guidelines.
  • Individuals may also have to answer health screening questions before entering a facility.
  • Individuals are encouraged to bring their own black or blue ink pens.

USCIS will send out further instructions to applicants as appointments begin to be rescheduled.
