U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services offices will be closed across the country Wednesday as part of a national day of mourning to remember the life of former President George H.W. Bush, who died last week.

USCIS said in a statement that it would “reschedule naturalization ceremonies and interviews and will promptly notify applicants of their new scheduled date.” The agency said that applicants with biometrics appointments will receive a new appointment notice within three weeks.

The USCIS Contact Center will be open Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST, but live help will be limited. Up-to-date information on USCIS office closures is available on this website.
