additional USCIS offices to be located outside of major cities

Some interesting announcements at USCIS website this week:


  • USCIS will also enter into a formal partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the Farm Service Agency to provide temporary office space to USCIS. From there, USCIS officers will provide services to communities with significant numbers of immigrants who are not located near a USCIS office. Services will include biometrics collection, case interviews and information presentations.



  • Beginning this month, USCIS will expand the Citizenship Public Education and Awareness Campaign, launched in July 2015, into six additional states – New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Virginia, Washington and Arizona. The 10 participating states are home to 75 percent of the country’s lawful permanent residents.
