Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS)

The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) was formerly a part of the Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS). When the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) came into being in March 2003, the INS was divided into several components and placed under DHS. USCIS is the component that provides immigration benefits.

USCIS is responsible for the administration of immigration and naturalization adjudication functions and establishing immigration service polices and priorities.

A primary goal of USCIS New Delhi is to ensure that the correct benefit goes to the right person at the right time, while providing exceptional customer service.

The New Delhi Sub Office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is located at the American Embassy and can be accessed through the visa gate.

USCIS operates Monday through Thursday, between 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. by appointment.  Please schedule an appointment through Info Pass at

USCIS is closed on American and Indian holidays.
