The Law Office of Natalia Malyshkina strongly encourages all its clients and people following this blog who have appointments scheduled at USCIS beginning Monday, August 5, 2013 to take possible BART strike into consideration and leave several hours early before their appointment to make up for traffic delays and the necessity to take alternative means of transportation.
Here is an important announcement from USCIS regarding a possible BART strike:
This notice pertains to applicants who have appointments at the San Francisco Field Office beginning Monday, August 5.
Dear community advocates,
At this time it appears that there is a real possibility BART will be on strike on Monday, August 5. Acting District Director Robin Barrett asked me to inform you of the following contingency arrangements.
If a strike materializes, the San Francisco Field Office will provide these special accommodations to applicants with scheduled appointments:
Ø Applicants unable to keep their appointment will be automatically re-scheduled. There is no need to call the National Customer Service Center for re-scheduling.
Ø Applicants who arrive late will be accommodated to the extent possible. Please remember that staff, like applicants, are faced with very challenging alternative travel plans.
These arrangements will continue for the duration of the expected BART strike. Please share this information with your community.
We pledge to continue providing service to our customers with courtesy and professionalism during these challenging times. Thank you for your assistance.
