To protect our workforce and to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in our communities, effective immediately, USCIS is suspending all routine face-to-face services with applicants at all of our offices, including all interviews and naturalization ceremonies.

All USCIS field offices, asylum offices and Application Support Centers (ASCs) will not provide in-person services until at least April 1. This includes interviews, naturalization ceremonies and biometric collection appointments. However, we will continue to provide emergency services during this time. If you have an emergency service request, please contact the USCIS Contact Center at 1 (800) 375-5283.

Internally, USCIS is closed to the pubic. All interviews, naturalization ceremonies and biometric/fingerprint appointments have been automatically canceled until at least April 1, 2020. Persons with an appointment during these dates do not file any forms with USCIS for this cancellation. USCIS will reschedule individuals when USCIS is working normally. Persons with emergency situations who require an appointment during this time will be considered on a case by case basis. USCIS can be reached at 1-800-375-5283 or www.uscis.gov

Externally, travel between Mexican and Canadian borders will not be possible for recreational or tourist reasons starting March 21, 2020. Travel for essential and commercial purposes will still be allowed. United States Embassies and Consulates are no longer scheduling interviews or issuing temporary or permanent visas to enter the United States. Persons with emergency situations who require an appointment will be considered on a case by case basis. Information on reaching the nearest United States Embassy or Consulate can be located at www.usembassy.gov

Removal hearings have been cancelled for all persons that are not detained. Removal hearings are still being conducted for persons in detention facilities. For information regarding removal proceedings you may call 1-800-898-7180.

As of March 18, 2020, ICE will focus on detaining persons that are a risk to the public safety of the United States and persons that are mandatory detention cases based on criminal violations. If persons are not in one of these two (2) categories, ICE officers will determine enforcement alternatives. Any persons required to report to ICE must contact ICE for reporting procedures in light of COVID-19. Further, ICE policy states officers should avoid making arrests at sensitive locations – to include schools, places of worship, and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities – without prior approval in an extraordinary circumstance.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Sincerely,
