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 click on the link to their website here:
