The USCIS website has links to its various field offices where biometrics and interviews take place around the country. The website has now been updated to include a link that designates USCIS Office Closings. This is helpful when there are last minute closures and a rescheduling notice has not been sent in time: See USCIS office closings.
In addition, the USCIS website encourages applicants to consider canceling and rescheduling the USCIS appointment, whether it be for biometrics, or an interview. To reschedule an interview, the instructions on the notice may be followed to put in a written request. USCIS would like to ensure the safety of its employees and other clientele. To that extent, USCIS is encouraging those who are ill, whether or not from COVID-19, to reschedule. Other conditions include the following:
- Have traveled internationally to any country outside the U.S. within 14 days of your appointment;
- Believe that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 (even if you have not travelled internationally); or
- Are experiencing flu-like symptoms (such as a runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat or fever).

GT will continue to monitor closures of USCIS offices and U.S. consulates/embassies around the world as it affects our clients.
