USCIS to Reopen International Field Office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras

On April 2, 2024, USCIS will reopen an international field office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, within the U.S. embassy. USCIS is expanding its international presence in strategic locations to support family reunification and refugee processing and to strengthen the integrity of the U.S. immigration system.

  • The Tegucigalpa Field Office is a regional refugee processing center that includes the refugee coordinator from the Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration and offices of the Resettlement Support Center for Latin America and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
  • In addition to supporting increasing refugee processing in the area, the Tegucigalpa Field Office will allow USCIS staff to assume responsibility for other agency workloads currently handled by the U.S. Department of State Consular Section, including processing Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition.

Services at the office in Tegucigalpa will be available only by appointment. USCIS will update its International Immigration Offices webpage to include information about the field office, its services, and appointments.
