I plan to submit
an immigrant petition to USCIS soon. I want to know if the
USCIS still accept the immigration petitions during COVID-19 period?
U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services (USCIS ) has temporarily suspended routine
in-person services to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
USCIS plans to begin reopening its offices on or after June 4, unless
the public closures are extended further.
USCIS staff are continuing to perform duties that do not involve
face-to-face contact with the public. However, USCIS will provide
emergency services for limited situations. During this time,
individuals may still submit applications and petitions to USCIS.
Online filing remains the most convenient and interactive way to submit
For field office appointments and rescheduling, USCIS domestic field
offices will send notices with instructions to applicants and
petitioners with scheduled interview appointments impacted by this
closure. They will automatically be rescheduled once normal operations
resume. Individuals who had InfoPass appointments with a Field Office
must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center.
