  • USCIS Updates Guidance on Expedite Requests

    Release Date
    01/25/2022

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has updated the USCIS Policy Manual to reflect new guidance on how we determine whether a case warrants expedited treatment. The new guidance is effective immediately.

    This update:
    • Clarifies the criteria and circumstances under which we generally consider expedite requests from nonprofit organizations as determined by the Internal Revenue Service;
    • Provides additional examples of when we may consider expedite requests made by federal, state, or local agencies, including labor and employment agencies;
    • Adds examples to further illustrate how the expedite criteria relates to emergencies and urgent humanitarian reasons; and
    • Explains that some circumstances may affect or delay our ability to expedite an application or petition.

    For more information, see the How to Make an Expedite Request page on the USCIS website.
