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 person who has received all the required Covid-19 vaccine doses to complete the shot and it has been at least 2 weeks since the last shot was administered will no longer be required to wear a mask.
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 and not fully vaccinated are still required to wear face masks to meet the USCIS standard for in-person visits.
