USCIS Extends Filing Flexibilities Related to COVID-19 Through October, 2022

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced yesterday that they are extending their COVID-19-related flexibilities for certain requestors, applicants, and petitioners through October 23, 2022. Essentially, USCIS will continue considering responses received within 60 days after the due date for the following:

  • Requests for Evidence
  • Continuations to Request Evidence
  • Notices of Intent to Deny
  • Notices of Intent to Revoke
  • Notices of Intent to Rescind
  • Notices of Intent to Terminate Regional Centers
  • Notices of Intent to Withdrawal Temporary Protected Status
  • Motions to Reopen an N-400 Application for Naturalization pursuant to Receipt of Derogatory Information after Grant

USCIS has also announced that they will consider a form I-290B Notice of Appeal to the Administrative Appeals Unit or form N-336 Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings under these flexibilities if the form was filed up to 90 days from the date of USCIS decision, and the decision was made between the dates of November 1, 2021 and October 23, 2022.

In addition, USCIS is considering making some of these flexibilities permanent as a result of lessons learned due to filing difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The USCIS encourages those affected by these flexibilities to visit their COVID-19 information page for additional updates.
