USCIS offices closing?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Hope this is allowed - I remember reading in the news back in March that the current administration is planning on closing all international USCIS offices, with duties being transferred domestically.

Does anybody know any more about this? I was hoping to file DCF with London, but not until early next year, so I'm a little worried this may not be an option when our time rolls around.

 

Thanks!

The plan is for all offices to close before the end of 2019. They started with Moscow and Manila because these offices receive less traffic. They may keep the others open through 2019 but not later. We don't know. 

 

Why are you waiting until 2020 to apply? Why not do it earlier?

Because of our jobs and personal family circumstances, it doesn’t really make sense for us to leave the UK until late next year.

If you end up applying stateside plan on 12 to 14 months.   You can always drag it out longer
