The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced the launch of their new online appointment request form available to individuals, attorneys, and representatives. The new online form allows you to request an in-person appointment at a local USCIS field office without the need to call into the USCIS Contact Center.
On the new My Appointment page on the USCIS website, you can now request an appointment for ADIT Stamp, Emergency Advanced Parole (EAP), Immigration Judge Grant, and several other reasons. Additional reasons that you can request a field office appointment for include American Indians Born in Canada, Certified Copies of Naturalization Certificate, Deferred Action, Lost Immigration Visa Packets, Verification Referrals, Service Administrative Errors Certified Copies, MyUSCIS Account Locked, and much more. A full list of reasons for which you can request an appointment at a local field office can be found when starting the appointment requesting process below.
To request an appointment, you click the “Request an appointment” button on the new USCIS online appointment page. You can make an appointment to visit your local USCIS field office in-person to make inquiries and to drop off documents related to your case.
Either you or an attorney or representative can request an appointment.
You’ll then select the type of appointment that you are requesting. If you select “Other”, a dropdown list will appear with all valid other reasons for requesting an in-person appointment.
One thing to note is that this new appointment request option is not a self-scheduling tool, which means you won’t be able to schedule your own appointment. This form is just for appointment requests, meaning that you’ll select your preferred day of the week and time of the day for your appointment, which will then be reviewed by the USCIS.
After you submit your appointment request, the USCIS will review your submitted form and see if your preferences can be accommodated. UCSIC will confirm and schedule your appointment based on availability while also keeping in mind your preferences. You will be notified once your appointment is confirmed. You may also be contacted by the USCIS Contact Center by phone or email if more information is needed.
This new online appointment request should streamline the in-person appointment scheduling process, preventing applicants from having to call the USCIS Contact Center to do so. To submit your appointment request, visit the USCIS My Appointment page.
