Miami Immigration Services
The current coronavirus pandemic has closed many businesses and government offices, including U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The temporary closure of USCIS offices has put the citizenship and green card applications of many immigrants on hold for the duration of the crisis. For those eagerly awaiting word about their applications, this delay could create stress that could add to worries about the COVID-19 outbreak. Working with a qualified Miami immigration lawyer can provide the help you need to navigate this difficult time and to achieve your goals of living and working in the United States legally.
Temporary Suspension of Services
USCIS has announced that it will temporarily suspend all Miami immigration services, including interviews, work permits, citizenship proceedings, biometric services, extensions of status hearings and green card processing. Offices offering nationwide and Miami immigration services will be closed through at least May 3, 2020. This will affect thousands of people around the country who are currently waiting to learn the status of their requests and applications. USCIS is following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization for managing the spread of COVID-19.
