USCIS Announces Closures for Inauguration Day

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced it will temporarily suspend in-person services at all field offices, asylum offices, and application support centers on Jan. 19 and 20 to ensure the safety of our employees and individuals with appointments.

USCIS will reschedule individuals who had appointments on Jan. 19 and 20 and send them notices with their new appointment dates. The USCIS website and USCIS Contact Center will remain available for information, case status updates, and other online tools and resources.

In December, USCIS announced that 1.3 million biometrics appointment notices needed to be issued. The backlog is due partly to the shutdowns earlier in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please contact info@challalaw.com if you have any concerns about rescheduling your appointment.
