Customized Immigration Solutions For Businesses, Investors And Families

COVID-19 is a crises situation that few of us imagined, and even fewer were prepared for.  Amidst the growing health crises, arise questions pertaining to one’s immigration status in the US. Will your visa/petition be extended? What if the travel ban does not allow me to leave the US? Will Department of Homeland Security extend the statutory deadlines ? We will try and summarize the impact of COVID-19 on immigration-related matters. 
Immigration impact on non-immigrants and resident aliens in the US
As of March 18, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has suspended routine in-person services until at least April 1 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Thus, the San Francisco and San Jose Field Offices; Oakland, Salinas, San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Rosa Application Support Centers; and the San Francisco Asylum Office are closed.  USCIS will send notices with rescheduling instructions to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments impacted by this closure. USCIS will automatically reschedule biometric appointments due to the office closure. USCIS has temporarily suspended premium processing for all Non-Immigrant and Immigrant visa petitions. In response to growing pressure by Immigration attorneys, the Department of Justice’s Executive Office of Immigration Review offices were finally closed for both Master Calendar as well individual hearings on March 18 th 2020.
US Visa Services at Consular posts abroad
In response to the concerns brought on by the spread of COVID-19, certain consular posts have begun alerting applicants of reduced or temporarily suspended visa services. Here is a list of  embassy websites for country-specific information concerning COVID-19 . Please check with an immigration attorney if you are planning to leave the United States.
