Most immigration courts are still open, but some hearings are cancelled. Right now, all courts have cancelled ‘non-detained master calendar’ hearings between March 16 – April 10. If your hearing is cancelled, they will reschedule it later.
You can check on your hearing by calling the court hotline at 1-800-898-7180 or online: https://portal.eoir.justice.gov/InfoSystem/Form?Language=EN. To find your hearing, you need your “A Number” which is a 9-digit number, starting with the letter A. It is on your immigration papers. It might look like: A208-000-000.
When you call or look online it should say if you have a master calendar hearing or an individual hearing scheduled. If you are scheduled between March 16 to April 10, your hearing is probably postponed. You will be rescheduled. They are trying to update the schedules on the phone system and online but it’s going to take a while. If you are scheduled farther out, your date may be ok.
If you moved or are going to move soon, make sure the court has your new address. Fill out a change of address form and mail it to the court. If your case is in Minnesota, this is the form to fill out: https://www.justice.gov/eoir/file/640016/download.
All appointments between March 18 – at least April 1 will be rescheduled. You will get a new appointment date and time in the mail from USCIS. If you moved or are about to move, make sure you update your address, so you get any notices about your case. See our fact sheet about Change of Address.
Fingerprinting appointments at an Application Support Center are also cancelled and will be rescheduled.
You can check on your case status online: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do. You need the receipt number for the papers you filed. That should be on a receipt USCIS sent you after they got your application. It’s a letter and number code at the top of that letter. It starts with 3 letters, for example EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC and then has 10 numbers.
You can also call the USCIS contact center at 1-800-375-5283. You also need your receipt number when you call.
ICE is still accepting bond payments at office locations with “bond windows.” This includes the Minnesota location at the Ft. Snelling federal building. Only the person paying the bond should go. If you have questions about bonds in general, see our fact sheet Immigration Bonds.
