USCIS has announced that, in response to Covid pandemic, it is extending the flexibilities currently made available to applicants and petitioners in certain response and appeal submissions.
For applicants and petitioners who receive Requests for Evidence (RFEs) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs) dated between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, it will consider any responses submitted within 60 calendar days after the response deadline mentioned in the RFE or NOID, before taking any action.
The flexibility is available to petitioners and requestors who are responding to:
- Requests for Evidence;
- Continuations to Request 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; and
- Motions to Reopen an N-400 Pursuant to 8 CFR 335.5, Receipt of Derogatory Information After Grant
if the issuance date listed on the request, notice or decision is between March 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.
Additionally, USCIS will also consider a Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion or Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings if the form was filed up to 60 calendar days from the issuance of the decision, and that decision was made between March 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.
