US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is again extending the period for issuance of communications allowing additional response time, first announced on March 30, 2020.
The original pronouncement allowed 60 additional days to respond to Request for Evidence, Notices of Intent to Deny, Notices of Intent to Revoke, and several other types of communications issued from March 1 to May 1, 2020.
The latest announcement extends the applicability of the 60-day additional response window to communications issued up through September 11, 2020.
Note that the 60-day additional response period, on top of the 30- or 87-day period normally granted, isn’t what’s being extended here; all impacted communications are still getting only an additional 60 days. It’s the period during which these communications are issued – and so are getting the additional 60-day response time – that’s being extended to September 11, 2020.
