U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on March 22, 2024, the reopening of an international field office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. USCIS said the Tegucigalpa Field Office, which will be available only by appointment, “will focus on increasing refugee processing capacity and helping reunite individuals with their family members already in the United States.”

The Tegucigalpa Field Office will be located inside the U.S. Embassy in Honduras. USCIS said its staff will assume responsibility for agency workloads currently handled by the Department of State’s Consular Section there. Additionally, reopening the USCIS Tegucigalpa Field Office “will help support the U.S. government’s effort to resettle refugees from the Americas,” USCIS said.
