U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has released a new online form for individuals, attorneys, and accredited representatives to request an in-person appointment at their local field office without having to call the USCIS Contact Center. See link below.

In-person appointments are only to be requested for the following:

  • ADIT stamp
  • Emergency Advance Parole
  • Immigration Judge Grants
  • Afghan Special Immigrant CPR Status
  • American Indians Born in Canada (Section 289)
  • Certified Copies of Naturalization Certificate
  • Deferred Action
  • T, U, and VAWA Inquiries
  • I-94 Cuban Paroles and Re-Paroles
  • Lost Immigration Visa Packets
  • MyUSCIS Account Locked
  • Parole-In-Place (PIP)
  • Request to Locally Receipt Forms
  • Verification Referrals
  • Service Administrative Errors Certified Copies
  • A-Number Request
  • Military Request for Appointment
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ)-Age Outs
  • Central American Minors (CAM) Parole Program

As soon as the form is submitted, the USCIS Contact Center will review the forms and the availability of in-person appointments at a specific field office. Individuals may request a specific date and time for an in-person appointment, but USCIS cannot guarantee that the requested appointment date will be scheduled. You can expect to be contacted by phone or email, depending on the urgency.
