USCIS Extends Certain Flexibilities to COVID-19 Related Filings Till October 2022

To help applicants, petitioners, and requestors, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is extending a few COVID-19-related flexibilities to October 23, 2022. Following these flexibility provisions, if a request or notice was sent between March 1, 2020, and October 23, 2022, inclusive, USCIS considers a response submitted within 60 calendar days of the due date stated in those requests or notices before taking any action.

Here is a list of those flexible requests:

  • Requests for Evidence;
  • Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14);
  • Notices of Intent to Deny;
  • Notices of Intent to Revoke;
  • Notices of Intent to Rescind;
  • Notices of Intent to Terminate regional centers;
  • Notices of Intent to Withdraw Temporary Protected Status; and
  • Motions to Reopen an N-400 Pursuant to 8 CFR 335.5, Receipt of Derogatory Information After Grant.

Additionally, USCIS will take into account a Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings (Under Section 336 of the INA), or a Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion, if:

  • The form submission happened within 90 days of the day we issued our decision; and
  • Between November 1, 2021, and October 23, 2022, inclusive, we made that choice.

USCIS has been assessing which flexibilities can and should be permanently extended to use the lessons we’ve learned from our pandemic posture. Due to this study, the replicated signature flexibility stated in March 2020 will no longer be available as of July 25, 2022.
