USCIS Closing Moscow Field Office
The USCIS Moscow Field Office is closing.
On March 29, 2019, the USCIS is permanently closing its Moscow Field Office. The office closed its doors to the public on February 28, 2019, and is no longer accepting applications. The reason the agency gives for the closure is a significantly decreased workload.
Below is the tweet from the USCIS regarding the closure.
