In March, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, announced its plans to close many of its international field offices, which will now result in 13 closures globally.
USCIS in Haiti will permanently close to the public on November 29. However, the Consular section of the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince will assume responsibility for certain in-person services that USCIS currently provides to individuals residing in Haiti.
The Consular section of the Embassy which is primarily responsible for American citizen services, and the adjudication of nonimmigrant and immigrant visas, remains open for all consular services.
USCIS is working closely with the Department of State to provide for a smooth transition of responsibilities and to minimize disruptions in the provision of these services.
