U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) was formerly a part of the Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS). When the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) came into being in March 2003, the INS was divided into several components and placed under DHS. USCIS is the component that provides immigration benefits.
USCIS is responsible for the administration of immigration and naturalization adjudication functions and establishing immigration service polices and priorities. U.S. Embassy Colombo does not have a USCIS representative in Sri Lanka. Therefore, USCIS New Delhi is responsible for managing immigration services for those in Sri Lanka. For more information about the services USCIS New Delhi provides, please see the information below and click on the link to their website here: http://newdelhi.usembassy.gov/uscis.html.
A primary goal of USCIS New Delhi is to ensure that the correct benefit goes to the right person at the right time, while providing exceptional customer service.
The New Delhi Sub Office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is located at the American Embassy and can be accessed through the visa gate.
USCIS operates Monday through Thursday, between 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. - without appointments.
You can make an appointment for Friday by sending an email to:
USCIS is closed on American and Indian holidays.
