USCIS Changes International District Names
Effective April 10, 2014, all USCIS offices will begin using new district names in all references to the international districts. The new names are as follows:
- Asia/Pacific (APAC) District, formerly the Bangkok District
- Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) District, formerly the Rome District
- Latin America, Canada and the Caribbean (LACC) District, formerly the Mexico City District
USCIS has implemented this change to ensure that the district names more descriptively convey the jurisdictions the districts cover. The APAC, EMEA and LACC District Offices will remain in their current locations of Bangkok, Rome and Mexico City, respectively.
