USCIS Extends Flexibility for Agency Requests Responses

The Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in various decisions to be made by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The newest announcement from USCIS on March 30 designated an extension of flexibility to assist applicants and petitioners who are responding to certain:

  • 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
  • Filing date requirements for Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion

USCIS will consider a response to these requests and notices that are received within 60 calendar days after the response due date that is set in the request or notice before they take action. Consideration will be made for a Form I-290B that is received up to 60 calendar days from the date of the decision before taking any action. 

In addition to this, USCIS will adopt a variety of measures to protect the workforce and community to minimize the immigration consequences for individuals seeking immigration benefits during this period. 

It is important to know that the flexibility for the documents listed above only applies if the issuance date listed on the request, notice, or decision is between March 1 and July 1, 2020.
