[b]USCIS to Expand In-Person Interview Requirements for Certain Permanent Residency Applicants
Release Date: Aug. 28, 2017
WASHINGTON – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin expanding in-person interviews for certain immigration benefit applicants whose benefit, if granted, would allow them to permanently reside in the United States. This change complies with Executive Order 13780, “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States,” and is part of the agency’s comprehensive strategy to further improve the detection and prevention of fraud and further enhance the integrity of the immigration system.

Effective Oct. 1, USCIS will begin to phase-in interviews for the following:

• Adjustment of status applications based on employment (Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status).

• Refugee/asylee relative petitions (Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition) for beneficiaries who are in the United States and are petitioning to join a principal asylee/refugee applicant.

Previously, applicants in these categories did not require an in-person interview with USCIS officers in order for their application for permanent residency to be adjudicated. Beyond these categories, USCIS is planning an incremental expansion of interviews to other benefit types.

“This change reflects the Administration’s commitment to upholding and strengthening the integrity of our nation’s immigration system,” said Acting USCIS Director James W. McCament. “USCIS and our federal partners are working collaboratively to develop more robust screening and vetting procedures for individuals seeking immigration benefits to reside in the United States.”

Conducting in-person interviews will provide USCIS officers with the opportunity to verify the information provided in an individual’s application, to discover new information that may be relevant to the adjudication process, and to determine the credibility of the individual seeking permanent residence in the United States. USCIS will meet the additional interview requirement through enhancements in training and technology as well as transitions in some aspects of case management.

Additionally, individuals can report allegations of immigration fraud or abuse by completing ICE’s HSI Tip Form.

сроки i485 скорее всего увеличатся на полгода :frowning:

немного обсудили в этой теме:рабочие-визы-тип-h-l-o-p-q-r-j-eb1-4-tn-td/68174-оформление-green-card-через-работодателя-28.html
А так да, пока что ничего кроме затянутых сроков, не предвидится. Мою 485 до октября скорее всего не успеют заапрувить, так что придётся идти на это интервью. Если раньше я расчитывал получить ГК к началу зимы, то теперь расчитываю получить её к весне. Если раньше не проведут никакую реформу, которая вообще отменит всю employment-based иммиграцию.

А как это будет влиять для тех кто не из США оформляет те же eb2-3 ?

Никак. Это не про них.

А почему до октября ? Норма же вроде как начала действовать сейчас.

А почему пол года ? Откуда взят такой срок.

Где-то прочитал в интернетах предположительную задержку. Как в реальности будет - посмотрим.
