USCIS Extends Flexibility for Responding to Agency Requests

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) had continued to work remotely and limit services offered online. Now as the severity of the pandemic subsides and certain in-person services are resumed, the USCIS is extending certain flexibilities beyond those announced on March 30 to assist applicants and petitioners who need to respond to the following:

  • Requests for Evidence;
  • Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14);
  • Notices of Intent to Deny;
  • Notices of Intent to Revoke;
  • Notices of Intent to Rescind and Notices of Intent to Terminate regional investment centers; and Filing date requirements for Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.

This extension only applies to any of the documents listed above if it was issued between March 1, 2020, and July 1, 2020. The USCIS will address responses to these only if it is received within 60 calendar days after the initial response due date. The USCIS will consider Form I-290B submitted within 60 calendar days from the decision date before taking any action. The USCIS is taking these measures for the purpose of public safety and to prevent any long term consequences for those seeking immigration benefits.
