USCIS Offices Closed Wednesday

National Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush

WASHINGTON—President Trump has declared Wednesday, Dec. 5, a national day of mourning to remember the life and legacy of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States. Accordingly, all U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offices will be closed Wednesday. USCIS will reschedule all naturalization ceremonies, interviews, and appointments set for that day.

USCIS will schedule new dates and promptly inform those affected. All applicants with biometric appointments scheduled for Wednesday will receive a new appointment notice within three weeks.

The USCIS Contact Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time, but with limited live help. You can also get basic information about immigration services and ask questions about your case on our Tools page.
