by | Jul 29, 2020

In response to the coronavirus (COVID‐19) pandemic, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is extending the flexibilities it announced on March 30 to assist applicants and petitioners who are responding to certain:

 Requests for Evidence;

 Continuations to Requests for 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; and

 Filing date requirements for Form I‐290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.

Notice/Request/Decision Issuance Date:

This flexibility applies to the above documents if the issuance date listed on the request, notice or decision is between March 1 and July 1, 2020, inclusive.

Response Due Date:

USCIS will consider a response to the above requests for evidence and notices received within 60 calendar days after the response due date set in the request or notice before taking action. USCIS will consider a Form I‐290B received up to 60 calendar days from the date of the decision before it takes any action.

USCIS is adopting several measures to protect our workforce and community and to minimize the immigration consequences for those seeking immigration benefits during this time.
