U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is preparing some offices to reopen and resume non-emergency public services on or after June 4. Due to the spread of the coronavirus in 2020, USCIS temporarily suspended routine in-person services at its field offices and application support centers. While certain offices are temporarily closed, USCIS continues to provide limited emergency in-person services. USCIS asylum offices will automatically reschedule asylum interviews that were canceled during the temporary closures. Asylum offices expect to conduct video-facilitated asylum interviews, where applicants will sit in one room and the interviewing officer will be in the other room. USCIS will also send notices to applicants to reschedule previously postponed naturalization ceremonies. Applicants and petitioners with previously scheduled appointments and interviews will be sent notices.
