USCIS Transitions to Fully Digital Forms: Ending Mail Forms by July 2024

Asylum, residency, citizenship, parole, family reunification—there are numerous procedures requiring forms issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In its effort to advance the digitalization of its processes, USCIS has decided to take a significant step forward by ceasing the printing of blank forms previously available by postal mail.

USCIS emphasizes that these documents are readily accessible through their online service, allowing users to quickly obtain them. However, it is acknowledged that some individuals may lack the necessary technological resources or knowledge. Despite this, USCIS has announced a date for the full transition to digital documents: “We are discontinuing Forms by Mail service on July 18, 2024. You will no longer be able to request physical copies of blank forms,” the agency stated.

All of our forms and instructions are available on the website to download, print, and complete,” the agency reminds users. The removal of the Forms by Mail service is intended to enable USCIS to allocate its resources to more essential tasks, as explained in a notice expanding on this decision.

The shift to fully digital forms by USCIS marks a significant step in streamlining immigration processes and making resources more accessible online. While this transition may present challenges for those lacking technological resources, the benefits of increased efficiency and resource allocation are substantial. Staying informed about these changes is crucial for navigating the evolving landscape of U.S. immigration services.
