USCIS Field Office Operations Updates
Below are the latest updates in trends at local USCIS Field Offices from around the country.
- Interviews for applications have been scheduled at some ASCs, including San Francisco, Dallas, and Albuquerque. Interview notices look like a standard interview notice but direct the applicant to appear at the ASC address rather than the field office. When applicants arrive, the officers conduct interviews remotely from other locations. In addition, virtual interviews are being conducted, with applicants in one field office and the officer located in another field office.
- We have received multiple reports of interviews being waived in family-based cases. Attorneys/applicants may receive an RFE for any additional information needed, including medical exams or even bona fides in a marriage-based case.
- We have received a number of reports of RFEs being issued by USCIS offices in other jurisdictions (not the jurisdiction of the applicant) for missing items (such as medical exams). This may be a result of cases being transferred to other jurisdictions for adjudication.
