USCIS Introduces Online Form for Requesting In-Person Appointments at Local Field Offices

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched a new online appointment request form, streamlining the process of requesting an in-person appointment at a local field office. Previously, individuals, attorneys, and accredited representatives had to call the USCIS Contact Center to request an appointment. The online form allows for requests related to ADIT stamps, Emergency Advance Parole, Immigration Judge Grants, and more. However, it is not a self-scheduling tool, as appointment availability will still be reviewed and scheduled by the USCIS Contact Center. Individuals can specify preferred appointment dates and times, but scheduling on the requested date is not guaranteed. The new system aims to enhance the customer experience by collecting necessary information upfront and potentially scheduling the requested appointment with minimal further engagement with the Contact Center. The initiative is part of USCIS’s commitment to improve federal customer experience and service delivery in line with an Executive Order. For more details, visit
