The USCIS offers a wide variety of services, including citizenship and green card-related services. The website provides information about green card eligibility categories, processes and procedures, and how to apply/ replace a green card. Similarly, the citizenship section of the website provides comprehensive information on the topic, including how to apply, how to find study materials to prepare for the naturalization test, and civic integration.
Moreover, many of the services do not require a visit to the local office. Here are some services available online through the USCIS website.
- Research immigration options
- e-File certain applications
- Check the progress of a case
- Calculate fees
Before visiting the local office, it is a good idea to check the USCIS website to see if the required service is available online. In case visiting is the best or only option, then it is important to follow the guidelines provided by the USCIS.
