The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulates immigration and naturalization. It is an agency of the Department of Homeland Security with close to 20,000 employees. Whenever an immigrant or an alien needs to do something with his or her status, they must get in touch with USCIS.
At the time of writing, the USCIS offices are closed and many of its employees are furloughed due to budget shortfall. Those who need to get in touch with the agency cannot since offices are closed but you may be able to call the USCIS Contact Service Center. But before you do that, we suggest taking a look at the USCIS website to see whether you can find what you need.
If you’re in need of a specific form or document, you are most likely to be able to get it online. The USCIS publishes all the forms and documents immigrants, aliens, and citizens need online. To see the USCIS forms available on our website, click here. Other than obtaining forms and other documents, you can contact the USCIS to learn about the process of your case.
Here is how you can contact the USCIS Contact Center.
How to speak to a human at the USCIS?
If you cannot get what you need on the USCIS website and want to speak to someone at the agency, dial 1-800-375-5283. USCIS Contact Center is available Monday through Friday between 8 AM to 9 PM. On Saturdays, it is available between 9 AM to 5 PM. Unfortunately, USCIS Contact Center isn’t available on Sundays. The agency included Saturdays very recently.
How to e-mail USCIS?
You can e-mail the USCIS but only for giving feedback to the agency about their website—not so useful eh? Luckily, you can use the agency’s e-request tool to ask questions about your case. This is especially helpful if your case is taking way longer to process than normal. You can also contact the USCIS this way if you haven’t received an expected mail from the USCIS or to sort out any errors or mistakes made by you or the agency.
