USCIS has announced that InfoPass, its internet-based appointment system, was formally launched in the New Jersey and Buffalo, New York offices on August 9, 2004. The program was formally launched in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offices on August 5, 2004. USCIS aims to have InfoPass in all 33 USCIS Districts by early September 2004. More information on the InfoPass program for these offices is located at the following locations:

With InfoPass, the public can go online to schedule a date and time to meet with an immigration information officer, avoiding the need to wait in line. InfoPass first debuted in Miami last year and has eliminated the lines in that office completely.
InfoPass is now offered in 12 languages including: Arabic, Chinese, Creole, English, French, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Tagalog, Russian, and Vietnamese. USCIS plans to add additional languages in the future.
We want to remind our clients and readers that the appointment system is adopted by the district offices only. The Service Centers are still not open to public visit.
