U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will automatically reschedule anyone who had an appointment canceled because of the Juneteenth holiday, the agency said.

Key Point

  • USCIS offices closed Friday after President Joe Biden signed legislation making Juneteenth a federal holiday.
  • Those who had appointments canceled do not need to reach out to the Contact Center for rescheduling; appointments will automatically be rescheduled.
  • Additional information on USCIS office closings is available here.

Background: Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. It falls on June 19 and was observed on Friday since June 19 is a Saturday this year.
