USCIS Ends COVID-Related Flexibilities, Reverts to Pre-Pandemic Policies

By March 27, 2023April 4th, 2023No Comments

USCIS has announced that certain flexibilities that were put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will end on March 23, 2023. If you receive any USCIS notices or requests dated after this date, you must respond by the deadlines listed in the notice or request. This includes Requests for Evidence, Notices of Intent to Deny, and Motions to Reopen. USCIS may still provide certain flexibilities on a case-by-case basis, but applicants or petitioners must request them and show they are affected by an emergency or unforeseen circumstance. For more information on remaining case-by-case flexibilities, please visit the Immigration Relief in Emergencies or Unforeseen Circumstances webpage.
