USCIS Begins Transition to Online Centralized Policy Manual

On January 7th the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) introduced a new online USCIS Policy Manual. They released the first volume, Citizenship and Naturalization and plan on releasing many other volumes as development progresses. The policies included in this volume will take effect on 1/22/2013, but are available online now.

“With the introduction of the Policy Manual, we take a further step to provide our customers, stakeholders and workforce with an efficient and effective adjudication process that provides a high level of quality and consistency,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas.
