USCIS Reminds Chilean Nationals of Available Benefits

In light of the recent earthquakes in Chile, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently reminded Chileans of U.S. immigration benefits available to eligible Chilean nationals upon request. Options may include the grant of an application for change or extension of nonimmigrant status on behalf of a Chilean national who is currently in the U.S., “even in cases where the request is submitted after the individual’s authorized period of admission has expired”; expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization due to severe economic hardship for F-1 students; and expedited issuance of employment authorization where appropriate, among others.
