USCIS Announces Changes in Deadlines to Respond to RFEs and Other USCIS Notices and to File an Appeal

Changes in deadlines to respond to RFE’s, other USCIS notices, and to file an appeal.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced flexibility in submitting required responses to notices that apply to applicants and petitioners who are responding to certain Requests for Evidence (RFE), Notices of Intent to Deny (NOID),  certain Notices of Intent to Revoke (NOIR), and Notices of Intent to Terminate (NOIT) regional investment centers, as well as certain filing date requirements for Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.

This flexibility applies to an RFE, NOID, NOIR, NOIT, or appealable decision within AAO jurisdiction and the issuance date listed on the request, notice or decision is between March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020, inclusive.

The temporary new flexibility instructs that any response to an RFE, NOID, NOIR, or NOIT received within 60 calendar days after the response due date will be considered by USCIS before any action is taken. Likewise, any Form I-290B received up to 60 calendar days from the date of the decision will be considered by USCIS before it takes any action.
