On May 22, 2012, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) launched the first phase of our new electronic immigration system, known as USCIS ELIS. This initial release brings the agency closer to realizing the web-based future of immigration services. Currently, USCIS ELIS is available for certain students and visitors who need to file a stand-alone Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status (Form I-539).

Future releases will add form types and functions to the system, gradually expanding to cover all USCIS immigration benefits. More information about USCIS ELIS is available on the web page, including the Instruction Guide for USCIS ELIS (PDF)and the USCIS ELIS Frequently Asked Questions.

USCIS hosted a series of webinars in June 2012 to give interested individuals an opportunity to view the different features of USCIS ELIS and ask questions about the new system.

The schedule for the webinar series was as follows:
