Does USCIS still Accept the Immigration Petitions During COVID-19 Period?


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 forms.

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.
