Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many people are in tough immigration situations. Were you on a work visa but lost your job? Is your non-immigrant visa status expiring? You may have had plans to leave the U.S., but now you're stuck because travel is not advised. Are you worried that sheltering in place in the U.S. will place you out of status?
When a natural disaster or other unforeseen event occurs, it can sometimes affect the processing of immigration requests. Currently, all U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offices are closed for in-person services, as is the Executive Office for Immigration Review in Sacramento. The Department of State is closing embassies and consulates around the world.
