Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that it will be adopting a measure to assist applicants and petitioners who are responding to Requests for Evidence (RFEs) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs) dated between March 1 and May 1, 2020.

Any responses submitted within 60 calendar days after a response deadline set forth in an RFE or NOID dated between March 1 and May 1, 2020 will be considered by USCIS before any action is taken. USCIS is adopting these and other measures to protect the workforce and community and minimize the immigration consequences for those seeking immigration benefits during this unprecedented time.

As the situation develops, USCIS will continue to follow CDC guidance and will also provide further information and updates.
