U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and other federal government offices will be closed Dec. 24 after President Donald Trump signed an executive order this week making Christmas Eve a federal holiday for employees this year.

Applicants who had appointments for interviews or biometrics on Dec. 24 will automatically have their appointments rescheduled. Applicants who had InfoPass or other appointments scheduled are asked to reschedule them on their own as soon as possible.

USCIS and other federal government offices will also be closed Dec. 25 for Christmas and Jan. 1 for New Year’s Day. Up-to-date information on USCIS office closures is available on this website.
