More Interviews – USCIS News 08/26/2017

USCIS will begin to interview some classes of immigrants where, as a rule, the interviews were previously waived.

It appears that Asylees, Refugee Family Members will now require interviews before getting a their green card.
Those requiring interviews will include Employment Visa holders seeking to adjust.

There is not a release of source documents for the new policy and the news articles seem to diverge in their limits. As an example, it appears that those seeking to “update” their visa may require a interview. Updating may include COS (Change of Status) applications of other routine updates.
Not mentioned was if there would be additional interviews for Fiance (K-1) visa Adjustments.
