USCIS Eases Visitor Restrictions for Fully Vaccinated Individuals

Due to updated guidance from the CDC, USCIS has updated its visitor policy. Fully vaccinated individuals no longer have to wear a face covering. Individuals two years old and older who are not fully vaccinated must still wear a face covering.

To be considered fully vaccinated, it must be at least two weeks after receiving a second dose in a two-dose series or at least two weeks after receiving a dose of a single-dose vaccine.

USCIS has eased other requirements for fully vaccinated individuals who do not have COVID-19 symptoms. For more information, visit USCIS Visitor Policy.

USCIS Temporarily Suspends Biometrics Requirement for Certain Form I-539 Applicants

Effective May 17, 2021, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services started to temporarily suspend the biometrics submission requirement for certain applicants filing Form I-539, Application To Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, requesting an extension of stay in or change of status to H-4, L-2, and E nonimmigrant status. USCIS will allow adjudications for those specific categories to proceed based on biographic information and related background checks, without capturing fingerprints and a photograph. This suspension will apply through May 17, 2023, subject to affirmative extension or revocation of the suspension period by the USCIS director. 

For further information, please visit USCIS website.

Rescheduling Biometric Services Appointments by Phone

Last month, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that applicants, petitioners, requestors and beneficiaries may now call the USCIS Contact Center (800-375-5283) to reschedule their biometric services appointments scheduled at a USCIS Application Support Center.

Applicants must establish good cause for rescheduling and must call before the date and time of their original appointment to reschedule. For more information, please see the Preparing for Your Biometric Services Appointment webpage.



Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It was June 1865 when enslaved learned they were free, two and half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. In a year when hundreds of worldwide protests against racism arose, we are glad to see more people recognizing the importance of Juneteenth.

Juneteenth - also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day - is celebrated on June 19.

Visa of the Month



The L-1B nonimmigrant classification enables a U.S. employer to transfer a professional employee with specialized knowledge relating to the organization’s interests from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States. This classification also enables a foreign company that does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send a specialized knowledge employee to the United States to help establish one.
