Immigration Help Due to Hurricane Florence and Typhoon Mangkhut


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will expedite or provide discretionary services of immigration cases impacted by unforeseen or extreme situations, or natural disasters such as the Hurricane Florence and Typhoon Mangkhut. 


Upon request either during or after filing an immigration case, USCIS may provide the following discretionary services:


  • USCIS may excuse a delay in applying for the extension or change of nonimmigrant status before an authorized period of admission expires if it was due to extraordinary circumstances beyond the nonimmigrant’s control;
  • Re-parole of individuals previously granted parole by USCIS;
  • Expediting processing of advance parole requests;
  • Expediting adjudication of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
  • Expediting adjudication of employment authorization applications;
  • Considering fee waivers due to an inability to pay;
  • Extension of response time or acceptance of a late response to a Request for Evidence (RFE) or a Notice of Intent;
  • Rescheduling an interview with USCIS;
  • Expediting replacement of lost or damaged immigration or travel documents issued by USCIS, such as a Permanent Resident Card (Green Card); and
  • Rescheduling a biometrics appointment.
