Chinese-Language Public Engagement
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will conduct a national Chinese-language engagement on how to petition for an immediate relative on Thursday, October 18, 2012 from 2:00 PM - 3:30PM (Eastern), hosted by the Public Engagement Division of the Customer Service and Public Engagement Directorate. This engagement is part of a series called “Jiao Liú” — meaning “engagement” in Chinese. It is modeled after the agency’s successful quarterly Spanish-language “Enlaces,” and expands our ongoing efforts to engage directly with our customers to provide information and answer questions about our benefits and services.
Each “Jiao Liú” will focus on a specific immigration or citizenship topic and includes a Q&A session with USCIS officials. The theme of our October 18 session is "How to Petition for an Immediate Relative." Individuals can participate in person, or via teleconference or live Web stream. USCIS officials and subject matter experts fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese will facilitate the event. USCIS will not offer legal advice during these engagements.
