The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that it will terminate certain COVID-19 pandemic-related flexibilities that were initially introduced in March 2020 on March 23, 2023. USCIS had earlier notified the public on January 24, 2023, that the extension of these flexibilities, announced on the same day, would be the last unless there were any changes due to the pandemic.
Therefore, any notices or requests from USCIS dated after March 23 must be responded to by the deadlines stated in them.
Also, if you wish to file Form I-290B or Form N-336 regarding a decision dated after March 23, 2023, you must comply with the deadlines in the form instructions.
USCIS may provide some flexibilities on a case-by-case basis upon request for applicants or petitioners affected by unforeseen circumstances like natural catastrophes, national emergencies, or severe illnesses (including COVID). Kindly see the Immigration Relief in Emergencies or Unforeseen Circumstances webpage for more information.
