The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is piloting a one-time, one-week biometrics collection for immigration benefits on Maui, from February 27 to March 3, 2017.
“I am pleased to announce that this much needed immigration service is coming to Maui,” said Representative Justin Woodson (Kahului, Puunene, Old Sand Hills, Maui Lani). “This will be very helpful in saving time, money, and resources for people who previously needed to travel to and from Oahu to get biometrics work done.”
The Mobile Biometrics Station will be at the Royal Lahaina Resort located at 2780 Kekaa Drive. Notices for appointments (Form I-797) will be mailed out beginning Feb. 10, and will include specific instructions. If there are any questions, please contact USCIS at 1-800-375-5283. This pilot is for biometric services only, and no interviews or case specific inquiries will be accommodated.
“I’d like to thank the USCIS for their support for this important program,” said Woodson. “This is a great relief to the Maui community. I want to let everyone know that this service will be available to them so they can take advantage of it while it is there. Hopefully the successful turnout will encourage this service to spread to other neighbor islands as well.”
