USCIS Opens International Adjudication Branch in California

The International Operations Division of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently opened a new support branch in Anaheim, California, to assist in processing select paper-based applications and petitions received from its international offices. The International Adjudications Support Branch (IASB) will not accept in-person appointments.

Initially, the IASB will focus its efforts on adjudicating non-health related applications to waive grounds of inadmissibility (Forms I-601) from USCIS’s office in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Such applicants must continue to file their waiver applications with USCIS at the U.S. consulate having jurisdiction over their place of residence.

The public may contact the IASB by mail at P.O. Box 65006, Anaheim, CA 92815-5006, or by e-mail to
