USCIS announces its schedule for the New Year
Those with procedures to do with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) should check the business days.
This agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) establishes the same rest days as other government agencies in the country.
USCIS is responsible for analyzing the immigration processes of aliens who come to the country legally. Activities undertaken by USCIS include the granting of North American citizenship and support for family reunification.
Other duties associated with USCIS include attending various humanitarian programs and overseeing adoptions. It is the duty of USCIS to grant permission to immigrants so that they can work in the country.
Before granting this right, the company has to scrutinize the candidates' characteristics and then enter the results on the E-verification website. This DHS virtual system helps organizations verify the eligibility of employees to perform their professional duties.
Operations will resume on January 2, 2024
USCIS has over 19,000 federal workers in more than 200 offices in various countries. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) establishes the first day of January as a holiday.
With this guidance, users know not to attend USCIS until the second day of the following month.
Another important information that people need to keep in mind is that the arrival of New Year is celebrated on the last date of December.
The 31st day of the current month is a Sunday and the seventh day of the week is not a business day for USCIS. Almost all government employees rest on official holidays and these dates are not deducted from their salary.
OPM reports that the holidays noted are days of official observance.
