U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – Amman

**Important information for visa applicants, green card holders, boarding foil applicants, and others regarding novel coronavirus** 

As of March 17, the United States Embassy in Amman has canceled all routine consular services. Canceled services include immigrant and non-immigrant visa appointments and USCIS services (including the issuance of boarding foils for lost, stolen or expired green cards, transportation letters, and I-730 interviews). We will resume routine services as soon as possible but we are unable to provide a specific date at this time.

For inquiries regarding Boarding Foils, Transportation Letters, Re-entry permits, and I-730 petitions please contact  AmmanUSCISsupport@state.gov.

File your petition by mail with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) lockbox facility in Dallas.  For mailing instructions, go to uscis.gov/i-130-addresses.  You can find additional filing information on the Form I-130 web page at uscis.gov/i-130. USCIS may authorize the Department of State to accept a petition filed with a U.S. Embassy or consulate in some limited circumstances.

In order to be granted expedited processing, do not request local filing. Instead, file with the lockbox facility and include a cover letter requesting expedited processing and explaining your justification.

Before requesting an appointment, you must submit the filing fee through the online payment system at my.uscis.gov/travel-document/.
