Key Points

  • USCIS is continuing to extend flexible measures for responding to agency requests
  • The measures were implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • USCIS is unlikely to continue the flexibility measures after this extension


As it has done since March 1, 2020, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is continuing to extend certain COVID-19-related flexibilities. The flexibilities, which are noted in this previous announcement, will apply through March 23, 2023.

USCIS also notes that it will consider a Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion, or a Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings, if the forms were filed up to 90 calendar days from when USCIS issued its decision, and if USCIS made its decision between November 1, 2021, and March 23, 2023.

USCIS notes that this extension will likely be the last one for responding to agency requests.
