International Services Update

Due to an HHS-wide change of financial institutions, the Division of International Services (DIS) is unable to issue filing fees for U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) through November 29, 2018. This suspension primarily impacts Visiting Program Participants seeking change to or extension of H-1B status.

Any cases that DIS was unable to process by November 8, 2018 will not be submitted to USCIS until November 30, 2018

Since this delay is attributable to an HHS-wide conversion, DIS is unable to make any exceptions.

As a reminder, DIS publishes all internal processing times on our website. If you have any questions, please contact DIS.
