Eligible Widow(er)s of Deceased U.S. Citizens must file I-360 Visa Petitions by October 28, 2011

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds eligible widow(er)s that October 28, 2011 is the deadline for filing a Form I-360 visa petition.

If you are the widow(er) of a U.S. citizen who died before October 28, 2009 you may be eligible to immigrate to the United States if:

  • You and your deceased spouse were married for less than 2 years when your spouse died and
  • You file Form I-360 for Special immigrant classification as a widow/widower by October 28, 2011. See section 568(c) of Public Law 111-83 for more information.

USCIS must receive your Form I-360 by October 28, 2011. Since you must file Form I-360 by mail or overnight courier, please be sure to ship it in time for USCIS to receive it no later than October 28, 2011.

Further details on filing as a I-360 Widow(er) —including application requirements, fees and procedures—are available at www.uscis.gov/I-360. For additional information, applicants may also contact USCIS at 1-800-375-5283.
