Closing of USCIS Offices Abroad

On March 12, USCIS Director L. Francis Cissna announced plans to close USCIS's almost two dozen international field offices.

The work performed by these offices, including refugee processing, assisting USD citizens with overseas adoptions, and processing of family-based cases filed by US citizens living abroad within the jurisdiction of these offices, would most likely shift to US-based USCIS facilities already significantly overburdened and with growing processing times.
