Updates to EOIR and USCIS Amid Coronavirus

Posted on by

USCIS UPDATE: As of March 18, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has suspended routine in-person services until at least April 1 to help slow the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). This includes any scheduled appointments, interviews, InfoPass appointments, asylum interviews and fingerprint appointments (Application Support Center). USCIS will send notices to any scheduled appointment that was affected due to the closure. USCIS will automatically reschedule asylum interviews and fingerprint appointments. Individuals who had InfoPass appointments must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center.

EOIR UPDATE: As of March 18, the Executive Office for Immigration Review has postponed all non-detained hearings nationwide through April 10, 2020. EOIR will send out new notices of hearing to those cases affected due to closure. Detained cases will be heard as scheduled.

OFFICE UPDATE: We are not accepting any face-to-face appointments but are holding teleconferences daily. Clients are more than welcomed to call the office to speak about their cases, and new clients are able to schedule consultations either via the phone or video conference via zoom. We will continue to post to our website and send email alerts out as things develop.
