Given the updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has updated its visitor policy for fully vaccinated individuals. These guidelines apply to in-person visitors coming to various immigration offices regarding their applications.
What Are the Updated Guidelines for In-Person Visits?
Based on these guidelines, the USCIS will no longer require in-person visitors to wear a mask as long as they are fully vaccinated. Meaning the individual has received all required Covid-19 vaccine doses to complete the shot and that it has been at least 2 weeks since the last shot was administered.
Additionally, fully vaccinated individuals coming to the US must visit a USCIS center if:
They have traveled internationally by air, and domestically by air or on a cruise ship in the last 10 days
They have been around non-vaccinated people who have been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 14 days
Any individual over the age of 2 that is not fully vaccinated is still required to wear a face mask to meet the USCIS standards for in-person visits.
