USCIS extends deadline for immigrants to submit additional green card and naturalization documents

Ane the increase in COVID-19 cases and the possibility that immigrants face problems compiling documents, the Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) expanded the flexibility for those individuals to submit additional information about their immigration protection petitions, such as ‘green card’, naturalization, among others.

“This flexibility applies to documents … if the issue date that appears in the application, notification or decision is between March 1, 2020 and March 26, 2022,” said that office. “USCIS will consider a response to the above requests and notifications received within 60 calendar days after the expiration date dand the response established in the request or notification before taking any action ”.

What documents do you refer to?

>> Test requests
>> Notices of intention to deny visa or green card application
>> Notices of intention to revoke
>> Notices of Intent to Rescind
>> Notices of Intent to Terminate Regional Centers Motions to Reopen an N-400 (Naturalization)

USCIS also made a similar decision regarding Form I-290B or Notice of Appeal or Motion, as well as Form N-336 or Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings.

In this way, immigrants may submit the form up to 90 calendar days from the issuance of a decision made by the agency, as long as that response is between November 1, 2021 and March 26, 2022.

Remember to ask for legal advice, to avoid any complications.

USCIS will also issue work permits expeditiously for healthcare employees., in order to avoid staff shortages amid the new coronavirus crisis.
