Attorney Chris Jaensch attended the grand opening of the new USCIS Office in Tampa today. The building houses the Tampa Field Office (which handles infopass appointments, green card interviews, naturalization issues and other immigration business); and it houses the Application Support Center (which handles biometrics and fingerprints).
The office will conduct naturalization oath ceremonies every day in the building. About 80 people can be naturalized per ceremony. If they get busier, they will add a second or third ceremony per day. The ceremony will not be the same day as the interview (but that may change in the future). The new citizen can register to vote but cannot apply for a passport at the ceremony.
The USCIS is working a national solution to the issue of whether a condition resident can re-adjust based on marriage to a new person.
The Application Support Center officially does not take walk-ins. If someone cannot make a biometrics appointment, they need to follow the instructions to reschedule.
There is an Immigration Support Officer at the Ft. Myers Application Support Center and clients can make an infopass appointment there.
The new USCIS phone number and address are:
5629 Hoover Blvd
Tampa, FL 33634
