USCIS announces flexibility in submitting the required signatures during the COVID 19 national emergency Us Immigration

About USCIS

“US. The Citizenship and Immigration Service announced today that due to President Trump’s announced March 13, 2020 COVID-19 emergency, we will accept all service forms and documents with reproduced original signatures, including Form I-129, Petition for Non-Immigrants Workers, for filings from March 21, 2020 and beyond.

USCIS already accepts various petitions, applications and other documents with an electronically reproduced original signature. This means that a document can be scanned, faxed, photocopied, or reproduced in a similar manner, provided the copy of an original document must be with an original handwritten signature, unless otherwise stated.[1] For forms that require an original wet signature, USCIS accepts electronically reproduced original signatures for the duration of the National Emergency according to the form instructions. This temporary change only applies to signatures. All other form instructions should be followed when completing a form.

Persons or organizations that submit documents with an electronically reproduced original signature must also keep copies of the original documents that contain the “wet” signature. USCIS may request the original documents at any time which, if not presented, could adversely affect the decision on immigration services.
