Are You a California Immigrant Concerned About the Coronavirus Outbreak?

The State of California has produced this Guide for California Immigrants, which provides advice on services, including public benefits, that are available to California immigrants, including some services that are available regardless of immigration status. The guide is also available in Spanish here.

The California Immigrant Policy Center has issued a resource guide for California immigrants in English and Spanish, and Protecting Immigrant Families has posted information in English and Spanish about immigrant eligibility for public programs during COVID-19. 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that health care related to COVID-19, including testing, preventative care, treatment, and vaccines (if one becomes available), will not negatively affect an individual’s public charge test. For more information, see here.   

For more information on visits to asylum offices or USCIS offices, visit the USCIS’s pages on field offices and office closings.
