USCIS Reopens Field Office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras: Enhancing Refugee Processing and Family Reunification Efforts

In a significant development, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the reopening of an international field office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. This decision underscores USCIS’ commitment to expanding its presence globally and facilitating humanitarian efforts, particularly in the Western Hemisphere.

“Reopening the Tegucigalpa Field Office establishes USCIS’ presence and expertise in a critical location in the Western Hemisphere and is part of our commitment to the Biden-Harris administration’s efforts to facilitate safe and orderly lawful pathways and meet our humanitarian mission,” said USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou. “USCIS is dedicated to fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve, and our renewed presence in Honduras is part of an effort to expand USCIS’ footprint outside the United States to more effectively support that mission.” – USCIS

Renewed Commitment to Humanitarian Mission

The reopening of the Tegucigalpa Field Office aligns with the Biden-Harris administration’s dedication to establishing safe and orderly lawful pathways for individuals seeking refuge or reunification with family members in the United States. USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou emphasized that the decision reflects the agency’s core values of fairness, integrity, and respect for all individuals it serves.

Expanded Services and Responsibilities

Situated within the U.S. Embassy in Honduras, the Tegucigalpa Field Office will assume various responsibilities previously handled by the U.S. Department of State Consular Section. These include conducting interviews and processing applications for Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition, as well as fingerprinting beneficiaries of T nonimmigrant applications, U nonimmigrant and VAWA petitions, and essential fraud detection activities.

Supporting Refugee Resettlement Efforts

The reopening of the USCIS Tegucigalpa Field Office also aligns with the U.S. government’s commitment to resettling refugees from the Americas, as outlined in the June 2022 Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection. By bolstering refugee processing capacity and facilitating the resettlement process, USCIS aims to contribute to broader efforts to address humanitarian crises and provide assistance to vulnerable populations.

Appointment-Based Services

Services at the Tegucigalpa Field Office will be available exclusively by appointment. USCIS will update its International Immigration Offices webpage to provide detailed information about the office, its services, and appointment scheduling procedures, ensuring accessibility and efficiency for applicants.
