Applicants May Need to Travel Farther for Personal Interviews
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) plans to reassign some green card and naturalization cases from local field offices with large backlogs to those with fewer cases. According to the agency, the change is intended to decrease the disparity in case processing times based on USCIS office location. USCIS practice had been to schedule green card and naturalization interviews at a local office nearest to the applicant’s home address.
