Immigration to the United States begins at June 4

Immigration activities are starting again in the United States from June 4. Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, this activity was stopped for about two and a half months.

Immigrants will face some changed circumstances after immigration starts again. On March 16, US President Donald Trump issued an executive order suspending all USCIS activities. Later in April, it was ordered to stop immigration to the United States for 60 days.

Most regular immigration services in the United States will resume on June 4. Since that day, regular and personal immigration services have been reintroduced to immigration field offices. The new situation will ensure the safety of USCIS employees and the immigrant community.

Authorities say the agency will follow the hygiene rules of the country’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That’s why the work process at the Asylum Office, Application Service Center and Immigration Field Office will be different. There will be no process before the COVID-19 epidemic.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, they will follow the rules of social distance. The number of appointments and personal interviews will be reduced so that time can be taken out for cleaning and sanitizing. The crowd in the waiting room will be reduced.
