UNITED STATES

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services offices as far north as Maine and as far south as Virginia were closed for all or part of Tuesday as a powerful storm struck the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Applicants who had appointments for interviews or biometrics at closed USCIS field offices will automatically have their appointments rescheduled. Applicants who had InfoPass or other appointments scheduled are asked to reschedule them on their own as soon as possible.

As of 7 p.m. EDT, the National Weather Service had reported more than a foot of snow in parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. The Associated Press reported that more than 6,000 flights had been canceled.

BAL Analysis: An up-to-date list of USCIS office closures is available on this website, which also provides information on how to reschedule appointments that were canceled because of the weather. Those with flights into or out of airports on the East Coast may wish to check their flight status with their airline before traveling to the airport.
