If you are an undocumented immigrant looking to change your immigration status, you most likely have already experienced difficulties in doing so, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March 18, 2020, all USCIS offices suspended in-person services, outside of emergency scenarios, for what seemed like it would be an indefinite period of time.
Fortunately, now, USCIS has announced that it plans to reopen its offices by June 4, 2020. This is a major step forward for those who’ve had their status put in limbo for months now. Once USCIS reopens, they will send notices of rescheduled dates for appointments and meetings to all petitioners and applicants who have had these appointments deferred because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, if you are someone who is applying for asylum and had your interview date pushed back, you shall receive a notice regarding the time, date, and location of your rescheduled interview.
All those with ASC appointments or naturalization ceremonies that were canceled will also now receive rescheduled dates via the mail as well. Lastly, all those with InfoPass or other appointments must reschedule those appointments through a USCIS Contact Center after June 4, 2020.
