Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness (LRIF) Extended

USCIS, Dec. 31, 2020

"The filing period for certain Liberian nationals and certain family members to apply for adjustment of status under the Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness (LRIF) provision has been extended from one year to two years (see Sec. 901. Extension of Period for Adjustment of Status for Certain Liberian Nationals of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021).

If you are applying to adjust status based on LRIF, you must properly file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, and we must receive it by Dec. 20, 2021.

We will update the Special Instructions for Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness Applicants and Form I-485 Instructions, as well as any other USCIS LRIF-related policies to reflect this change.

For more information about filing for adjustment of status under LRIF, see the LRIF webpage and Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status."
