End of COVID-19 Accommodation on USCIS Notices

The US temporary COVID-19 accommodation in relation to certain agency notices expires today.

The accommodation, initially introduced in March 2020, afforded foreign nationals and employers up to 90 days to respond to requests for evidence (RFEs), notices of intent to deny (NOIDs), among other USCIS notifications.

Following the end of the accommodation today, for notices and decisions dated on or after March 24, petitioners and foreign nationals must now respond by the deadline stated on the USCIS notification. In most cases, there will be a 30-day period in which to respond.

Notices and agency judgements received up to today, March 23, can continue to avail of the COVID provision and the additional 60-day period to respond.
