USCIS Combines Appointments for Rota and Tinian Applicants
Applicants from Rota and Tinian Have Biometries Taken at Interview Appointment
SAIPAN, CNMI- U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) advises applicants for immigration benefits in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) who live in Rota or Tinian that appointments for biometrics and interviews have been combined into one. USCIS did this to minimize the expense people face in traveling to Saipan twice for separate biometrics appointment and interview.

If an applicant in Rota or Tinian who is awaiting an interview receives a notice of a biometrics appointment, he or she can ignore that notice and have the fingerprints and photograph taken the day of the interview.

For more information about immigration benefits or to check the status of your application, please visit or; contact USCIS Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283; or make an appointment at to visit the USCIS office at TSL Plaza in Saipan.
