The US makes a positive move, extends response times

USCIS flexibility for responding

The US immigration has responded with some more positive measures in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. US Citizenship and Immigration Services has decided to extend the flexibilities it announced. These were announcements made on March 30, 2020, to help petitioners and applicants trying for immigration to the USA. They may be responding to any of the following instances:

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

This flexibility extended is applicable to the above documents in case the date of issuance listed on the notice, request, or decision falls between 1st March 2020 and 1st July 2020, inclusive.

Before taking any actions, USCIS will take into consideration a response to the above notices and requests received within 60 days after the due date for a response as given in the notice or request. USCIS will not reject a Form I-290B received up to 60 days from the date of the decision prior to taking any action.

USCIS is on course with several measures aimed at protecting the workforce and community. It also intends to minimize the consequences of immigration for those asking for immigration benefits.

USCIS will share further updates and US immigration status according to the developments in the situation. It will keep following the CDC guidance. It realizes that education, awareness, and precautions are the best tools one can use against the COVID-19 pandemic.
