U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has said it will make special measures available on a case-by-case basis for those affected by Hurricane Irma. The hurricane disrupted immigration and consular services in Florida and other parts of the South, but offices are beginning to reopen this week.
BAL Analysis: Those in need of special immigration services because of Hurricane Irma or Hurricane Harvey may contact the the National Customer Service Center or BAL about their immigration needs. Anyone with an appointment at a USCIS office or consulate in areas affected by the storms is urged to double check to make sure offices will be open at the time of their appointment.
