USCIS Office Closings

We last updated this page on September 30, 2020.

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 Reopening

Certain USCIS field offices and asylum offices resumed non-emergency face-to-face services to the public on June 4. We have enacted precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in reopened facilities.

  • You may not enter a USCIS facility if you:
    • Have any symptoms of COVID-19, including recently developed cough, fever, difficulty breathing, changes in smell or taste or fatigue (list is not all-inclusive);
    • Have been in close contact with anyone known or suspected to have COVID-19 in the last 14 days;
    • Have been instructed to self-quarantine or self-isolate by a health care provider, public health authority or government agency within the last 14 days; or
    • Are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.
  • You may not enter the facility more than 15 minutes before your appointment (30 minutes for naturalization ceremonies).
  • We will provide hand sanitizer at entry points.
  • You must wear face coverings that cover both the mouth and nose inside USCIS facilities. We do not allow masks with exhaust valves, neck gaiters or bandanas. If you do not have an acceptable face covering, we may provide one or ask you to reschedule your appointment.
  • There will be markings and physical barriers in the facility; you should pay close attention to these signs to ensure you follow social distancing guidelines.
  • You may also 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 and the web alert.
