ALERT: USCIS Announces 60-Day Extension of Deadlines for RFE and NOIDs

Joshua H. Rolf

Quick Takeaways:

  • If RFE issued between March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020, may submit up-to-60-days beyond stated deadline
  • Does not appear that new RFE/NOID Notices will be issued

On March 27, 2020, USCIS announced that it will allow an extra sixty (60) days for timely responses to all Requests for Evidence (“RFE”) or Notices of Intent to Deny (“NOID”) dated between March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020. USCIS does will not issue new RFEs or NOIDs to account for the extended response time, and instead will not take any action on the RFE/NOID until more than 60 days beyond the deadline. It appears that this guidance applies equally to RFE/NOID responses that will be sent to USCIS Service Centers, or which must be submitted in-person at USCIS Field Offices (which remain closed for routine interactions through at least April 7, 2020).

We at Green and Spiegel remain dedicated to providing up-to-date guidance on this quickly evolving situation as it becomes available. Please do not hesitate to call our office should you have any questions to how the coronavirus affects your international travel or internal status within the United States.

US and European Partners are Moving Towards Reopening Transatlantic Travel by Adopting New Pandemic Protocols

KEY POINTS: • Foreign nationals who wish to travel to the United States from Europe either must fit into one of the travel restriction exceptions or obtain advance permission to board a plane to the U.S. • In the alternative, they may travel to a third country and quarantine there for two weeks prior to coming to the United States. • The U.S. and overseas partners are anxious to relax those restrictions. Advanced COVID-19 airport testing may provide a solution. • We expect some testing of these technologies followed by the announcement of new travel protocols in time for the winter holidays.
