Were you affected by Hurricane Harvey? Or, was your family affected by
the hurricane? If so, has the hurricane somehow impacted your immigration
proceedings? For example, did you lose your
Green Card in the flood? Did you miss a scheduled interview with USCIS because of
the Hurricane? Did you miss a biometrics appointment?
“USCIS offers immigration services that may help people affected
by unforeseen circumstances, including disasters such as Hurricane Harvey,”
according to USCIS’s website. So, if you have personally been affected
by the hurricane, USCIS may be able to assist you. Please be aware that
USCIS offers assistance on a case-by-case basis and upon the individual’s request.
These are the types of measures being employed by USCIS to help immigrants
affected by Hurricane Harvey:
- Changing someone’s non-immigrant status.
- Extending a non-immigrant stay for someone who is currently in the United States.
- Re-parole of those who were granted parole in the past by USCIS.
- Expedited processing of immigrants’ advanced parole requests.
- Expedited determinations of certain employment authorization applications.
- Helping individuals who could not make their scheduled USCIS interviews.
- Expedited replacement of lost, stolen or damaged Green Cards.
When individuals contact USCIS for any of the above services, the agency
asks that when they make their request, they explain how they were impacted
by Hurricane Harvey, and how it created a need for them to ask the USCIS
