USCIS extends COVID-19 related flexibilities and permanently allows for electronic signatures

The items to which flexibility will be given include, but are not limited to, requests for evidence, notices of intent to deny, notices of intent to revoke and notices of intent to rescind. This flexibility will apply if the issuance date listed on USCIS’s request, notice, or decision is between March 1, 2020 and October 23, 2022, inclusive.
