Coronavirus Disrupts USCIS – Causes Temporary Closure of All Offices
Coronavirus disrupts USCIS services across the board. The USCIS responded to the Coronavirus pandemic and its spread across the United States by temporarily closing all its offices to the public until at least April 1, 2020.
The USCIS will still “provide emergency services for limited situations.”
If you have a pending application or interview appointment scheduled, you should receive or have received further instructions by mail. The USCIS will automatically reschedule pending appointments, interviews, and naturalization ceremonies once their normal operations resume.
