USCIS Office Closings

We last updated this page on November 29, 2021.

This page does not contain a list of all USCIS offices. It only lists offices that are closed or have temporarily changed hours. Please check this page on the day of your appointment for any office closures or other important information. If you have appointments at more than one office (for example, a field office and an application support center) please check both sections to ensure the offices are open.

We are not accepting walk-in visits at this time. You must have a scheduled appointment before arriving at a USCIS office. For more information or help, please see our Contact Center page.

Offices Open, With Cautionary Measures

USCIS domestic field offices and asylum offices are open with additional precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). In DHS-controlled spaces, this guidance supersedes state, local, tribal, or territorial rules and regulations regarding face coverings.

In areas of high or substantial transmission (CDC COVID-19 Data Tracker County View), all federal employees, contractors, and visitors must wear a mask inside federal buildings.

All federal employees, on-site contractors, and visitors must continue to follow local USCIS guidance on physical distancing and workplace protection guidance consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and agency guidance.

You may not enter a USCIS facility if you have:

  • COVID-19 or any symptoms of COVID-19 (according to the CDC), including, but not limited to, recently developed cough, fever, difficulty breathing, new loss of smell or taste, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, congestion, sore throat, or vomiting (this list does not include all symptoms);
  • Been in close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more) with anyone known to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days (unless you are fully vaccinated,* or you are a health care worker and consistently wear an N95 respirator and proper personal protective equipment (PPE) or equivalent when in contact with COVID-19 positive individuals);
  • Returned from domestic, international, or cruise ship travel in the past 10 days (unless you are fully vaccinated);
  • Been instructed by a health care provider, public health authority, or government entity to self-isolate or self-quarantine in the past 14 days (unless you have been cleared to end isolation or quarantine).

*Fully vaccinated means it has been at least two weeks since you received your second dose in a two-dose series, or at least two weeks since you received a single-dose vaccine.

If you need to reschedule your appointment, call the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283 (TTY 800-767-1833). To reschedule your appointment with an asylum office, please follow the instructions in your interview notice.

You may not enter the facility more than 15 minutes before your appointment (30 minutes for naturalization ceremonies).

USCIS will provide hand sanitizer at entry points.

If face coverings are required at the office that you are visiting and you do not have an acceptable one, we may offer a replacement.

There will be markings and physical barriers in the facility; you should pay close attention to these signs to ensure you and others can follow social distancing guidelines.

You may have to answer health screening questions before entering a facility.

We encourage you to bring your own black or blue ink pens.

Appointment notices will include more instructions for visiting USCIS facilities. For more information, see our USCIS Visitor Policy page.
