USCIS Outlines Procedures for Sandy Victims

Rate this Entry

Just posted:



U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds customers affected
by Hurricane Sandy of certain U.S. immigration benefits or relief that may be
available to them.


USCIS understands that a natural disaster can affect an individual's ability
to maintain lawful immigration status or obtain certain other immigration
benefits. Eligible individuals may request or apply for temporary relief
measures, including:



  • A change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an
    individual currently in the United States, even when the request is filed
    after the authorized period of admission has expired;

  • Extension or re-parole of individuals previously
    granted parole by USCIS;

  • Expedited adjudication of off-campus employment
    authorization applications for F-1 students experiencing severe economic
    hardship;

  • Expedited adjudication of employment authorization
    applications; and

  • Assistance to Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) stranded
    overseas without immigration or travel documents, such as Permanent
    Resident Cards (Green Cards). USCIS and the Department of State will
    coordinate on these matters when LPRs are stranded in places that do not
    have a local USCIS office.
