USCIS issues guidance clarifying processes and requirements for expedite requests

On 21 March 2024, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) updated sections of its Policy Manual relating to expedite requests. The updated Policy Manual clarifies how USCIS considers expedite requests related to government interests, emergencies, and urgent humanitarian situations, including travel-related requests. An individual may file an expedite request with USCIS for an application, petition, request, appeal, or motion under the USCIS's jurisdiction if they or their authorized representative believe that their case requires urgent and prioritized adjudication. USCIS handles these expedite requests on a case-by-case basis and has the sole discretion to decide whether to expedite the process, evaluating each request for its urgency and merit.
