Trump signed an executive order to make Wednesday’s December 5th a day off for all federal agencies to mourn for George Bush death. Will USCIS office close?


i have N-400/I-751 combo interview that day. What can I do? Should I try to walk-in a few days earlier?

I would expect to receive notification from them if your interview is cancelled......if not received, I would go to the appointment.......I don't think they will accept a walk-in for an interview......just my opinion.

I would give the office a call and see what arrangements need to be made as this is a short notice closing you will not get notification in time and you  need to see what is up .

My wife's classmate was notified that USCIS would be closed and her 12/5 N-400 interview was postponed due to the day of mourning. My thinking is that USCIS willl put her back in the queue and notify her when her new interview is scheduled. Hang in there. You are close.
