The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) is extending certain COVID-19-related flexibilities to respond to agency requests through October 23, 2022. The flexibility, which has been previously extended applies if the issuance date listed on the request, notice or decision was issued between March 1, 2020, and October 23, 2022, inclusive:
- Requests for Evidence;
- Continuations to Request Evidence (N-14);
- Notices of Intent to Deny;

- Notices of Intent to Terminate regional centers;
- Notices of Intent to Withdraw Temporary Protected Status; and
- Motions to Reopen an N-400 Pursuant to 8 CFR 335.5, Receipt of Derogatory Information After Grant.
The USCIS will consider a response to the above requests and notices received within 60 calendar days after the response due date set in the request or notice before taking any action.
The USCIS 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 (Under Section 336 of the INA), if:
- The form was filed up to 90 calendar days from the issuance of a decision it made; and
- USCIS made that decision between November 1, 2021, and October 23, 2022.
