USCIS Offices Set to Open June 4th

Since offices closed to the public on March 18th, many applicants have been unable to go to their USCIS appointments.

USCIS has announced that its local offices will reopen on June 4th. This means field offices, asylum offices, and application support centers (ASC) will resume in-person services.

Any appointments that were canceled because of the closures will be automatically rescheduled. This includes naturalization ceremonies. Notices will be mailed out to petitioners and applicants with details of the rescheduled appointments. Asylum offices will undergo a similar process to reschedule asylum interviews.

ASC appointments will be rescheduled by mail after offices reopen for in-person services. 

Overall, anyone whose appointment was to be at a field office, asylum office, or ASC will just need to wait to receive a new appointment time. 

Others that had InfoPass and other appointments must contact USCIS (contact center) themselves to reschedule. They also need to wait until the respective office is reopened.
