The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) is extending certain COVID-19-related flexibilities through March 23, 2023. The flexibilities, which were initially scheduled to expire on January 24, 2023 were previously extended in March and October 2022 are to assist applicants, petitioners and requestors in being allocated additional time to respond to certain USCIS requests including the following:

  • Requests for Evidence;
  • Continuous Requests for Evidence (N-14);
  • Notices of Intent to Deny;
  • Notices of Intent to Revoke;
  • Notices of Intent to Rescind;
  • Notices of Intent to Terminate Regional Centers;
  • Notices of Intent to Withdraw Temporary Protected Status; and
  • Motions to Reopen an N-400 Pursuant to 8 CFR 335.5, Receipt of Derogatory Information After Grant.

The USCIS will consider a response to the above requests and notices received within 60 calendar days after the response due date set in the request or notice before taking any action.

Like previous extensions, USCIS will still consider a Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion or a Form N-336, Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings (Under Section 336 of the INA) if:

  • The form was filed up to 90 days from the date the decision was made; and
  • The decision was made between November 21, 2021 and March 23, 2023.
