How is COVID-19 impacting the immigration application process?

As of June 24, 2022, the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offices are open with cautionary measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease. In addition to following the COVID-19 protocols within your community, you may not be allowed to enter a USCIS facility under the following circumstances. If you are not allowed to enter a USCIS office and you have an appointment, you may call 800-375-5283 (TTY 800-767-1833) to reschedule your appointment to a later date.

Due to the increase of safety precautions, you may experience a longer wait time to receive your biometrics services appointment notice, restrictions limiting access to application support centers; and longer biometrics collection times. USCIS has included the following information for what you should expect when arriving for your appointment and the visitor policy. Please be sure to review these guidelines prior to your appointment.
