USCIS Hosts a Chinese-language engagement (Jiao Liu) on 'How to Petition for an Immediate Relative"

Release Date:

Join us for our next national Chinese-language public engagement on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. EDT.  This engagement is the second in a series called Jiao Liu—meaning “engagement” in Chinese. The theme of our Jiao Liu will be “How to Petition for an Immediate Relative.” 

Modeled after the agency’s successful Spanish-language Enlace series, Jiao Liu expands our ongoing efforts to work directly with our customers in their native language. At each Jiao Liu, USCIS representatives and subject-matter experts, who are fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese, will be on hand to provide information, and answer general questions about immigration and naturalization.

Individuals in the New York City area may participate in person at our USCIS District Office located at 26 Federal Plaza, Room 3-310, New York, NY 10278. Individuals may also participate remotely through teleconference at 1-888-989-4980; Passcode: “Jiao liú,” or through live Web stream by visiting
