USCIS at time of Coronavirus 2019

Monday, March 30, 2020

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) temporarily suspended in-person services at its field locations to help slow the spread of Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). USCIS offices are scheduled to reopen on April 7 unless the public closures are extended further. Despite these locations are closed, USCIS staff are continuing to perform duties that do not involve contact with the public. That means Immigrant Investor Program Office (IPO) is continuing to adjudicate I-526, I-829, and I-924, and to terminate regional centers. EB-5 investors at the visa stage will be affected by the fact that all biometrics appointment have been temporarily suspended until at least April 7, all appointment will be rescheduled once USCIS again resumes normal operations.
