• USCIS requests that you do not appear more than 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
• Black ink pen is required for filling out forms/documents.

Interview and appointment notices are being issued with COVID-specific information. Further guidelines, including how interpreters, attorneys, and representatives may appear telephonically, can be found on the USCIS website at
