USCIS announced that it will extend some deadlines through March 23, 2023, as a result of continued COVID-19 disruptions. The agency has said they expect this to be the final extension.

In the case of documents whose issue dates were between March 1, 2020, and March 23, 2023, applicants and petitioners have an additional 60 days to respond to the following USCIS requests and notices including:

  • Requests for Evidence
  • Notices of Intent to Terminate Regional Centers
  • Notices of Intent to Deny
  • Notices of Intent to Revoke or Rescind
  • Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14)
  • Notices of Intent to Withdraw Temporary Protected Status
  • Motions to Reopen an N-400 Pursuant to 8 CFR 335.5, Receipt of Derogatory Information After Grant

If the USCIS receives a response within 60 calendar days of the response due date, a final decision will be made. What’s more, the agency will consider Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion, or Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings if both the form was filed up to 90 days from the issuance of a decision and the decision was made by USCIS between November 1, 2023 and March 23, 2023.
