USCIS Houston Offices Remain Closed Due to Hurricane Ike; Asylum Office, Two Application Support Centers reopen

DALLAS—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that its district office, the LIFE ActBuilding, and its SoutheastApplicationSupportCenter remains closed for business until further notice. 

However, the Northwest and Southwest ApplicationSupportCenters (ASCs) have reopened today and will also open for business on Saturday, Sept. 20 for customers with a biometric scheduled appointment only.  Customers without a scheduled appointment are asked to refrain from visiting these centers since they are not equipped to answer general questions and case status inquiries.   Finally, the agency’s Asylum Office has also reopened for business at normal work hours.   

Customers with naturalization and adjustment of status appointments will automatically be rescheduled.  Customers with INFOPASS appointments will need to reschedule.  See the Related Link on this page for instructions on how to reschedule.
