U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and other federal agencies will be closed Thursday, Nov. 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Offices will reopen Friday, Nov. 27.

Employers with urgent filing needs may want to submit applications and petitions by Wednesday, Nov. 25. Up-to-date information about local USCIS office closures is available here.

BAL Analysis: While the Thanksgiving holiday is not expected to cause significant delays, it falls during a peak season for those in need of services related to immigration or international travel. Applicants are encouraged to plan ahead, file early and prepare for possible delays.
