Winter Storms Close Several Offices

Many USCIS offices, including the Texas and Nebraska Service Centers, closed during the week of January 31, 2011, because of severe snow and ice storms that paralyzed much of the United States. USCIS will make adjustments to acknowledge timely filings for those who submitted immigration filings or responded to a request for additional information by a specific deadline.

A number of offices are closed due to inclement weather. Please see our Field Office Closings page.

If you plan to visit a USCIS office in an area affected by the severe weather or you believe may be affected by severe weather, please call the

National Customer Service Center (NCSC): 1-800-375-5283

to ensure the office is open for business and for further instructions on rescheduling your appointment if the office is closed.
