USCIS Adopts Flexible Policies for NOIDs and RFEs

March 31, 2020 | United States of America

In response to the COVID-19 national emergency, USCIS is implementing flexible policies for notices of intent to deny (NOIDs) and requests for evidence (RFEs).

The temporary changes give individuals who receive a NOID or an RFE dated between March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020 a 60-day response time before the agency takes action.

The measures are designed to reduce consequences for individuals seeking immigration benefits during the ongoing health crisis.
