USCIS extends until June 30 flexibility to respond to agency requests

In the Legal Orientation section of Acceso Latino, we provide you with all the help related to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as well as questions, among other issues.

Last year USCIS announced that, in response to the pandemic, it would extend the flexibility to respond to agencies in their immigration procedures. This to help requesting notifications, clairvoyance requests, among others.

After a series of extensions, which originally would end on March 30, 2020 and were subsequently increased several times until March 2021. USCIS announced in March a new extension until June 30, 2021.

The eight immigration procedures that USCIS contemplates are the following:

  • Requests for Evidence (RFE) 
  • Notifications of Intent to Deny (NOID)
  • Notifications of Intent to Revoke (NOIR)
  • Notifications of Intention to Rescind and Notifications of Intention to Cancel regional investment centers (NOIT)
  • Continuations to Requests for Evidence (N-14)
  • Date requirements for filing Form I-209B, Notice of Appeal or Motion
  • Request for a hearing on the decision in naturalization procedures under the Immigration and Nationality Law
  • Motions to reopen a Form N-400, Receipt of Repeal Information after Grant

This measure applies to those who receive these documents, in addition to requests, notifications or decisions, with dates from March 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

According to the agency, "USCIS will consider any response to requests and notifications if it receives them within 60 calendar days after the response deadline indicated in the request or notification before taking any action."
