U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is finalizing a plan to temporarily suspend the collection of in-person biometrics from certain Form I-539 applicants, according to an agency court filing. The change could take effect as soon as May 17.
BAL Analysis: The suspension will ease the Form I-539 application process and could improve overall processing times. Applicants are reminded, however, that the suspension has not yet taken effect, nor has it been detailed in a formal USCIS announcement. Applicants must attend their scheduled biometrics appointments. Even after the new policy takes effect, applicants who have already received a biometric services appointment notice will be expected to fulfill the biometrics requirement. BAL continues to monitor the situation and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
