Public Health Practices 

Consistent with public health officials’ guidance, EOIR has implemented practices to help to protect all people working in and visiting EOIR spaces throughout the country. Please see the agency’s Public Health Notice for more information.

EOIR operates within a variety of settings across the country, most commonly in federal or leased buildings controlled by the General Services Administration and detention facilities operated by the Department of Homeland Security. All visitors to any building or facility in which an EOIR operation is located are required to comply with all relevant laws or policies governing access to those buildings or facilities. Individuals who do not comply with any relevant laws or policies may be denied access to or asked to leave the building or facility. Individuals seeking to visit any building or facility in which an EOIR operation is located are encouraged to contact the building or facility in advance to determine any relevant policies or laws related to entry.

The immigration court has put into place procedures to implement the guidance of public health officials. Please take note of the information below and be prepared to follow these and any additional instructions provided to you when you arrive for your hearing.

  • Be prepared – have a mask available. Face coverings may be required in the courtroom if directed by the presiding immigration judge. As necessary and when appropriate, individuals with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing a face covering should alert the judge to their situation.
  • To maintain appropriate social distancing and best facilitate hearings, you may be asked to move or leave a particular area.
  • Waiting times to enter the building and EOIR space may be significantly longer than usual. Make arrangements to arrive in advance of your hearing so you arrive to the courtroom on time.
  • Social distancing (maintaining a distance of six feet from those with whom you do not live) is required.
    • Please remember this while choosing to enter an elevator. Elevator wait times may be significantly longer than usual for this reason.
    • In EOIR space, staff or signs may direct you to a seat. If instructed to sit in a particular location, do not switch seats.
  • Please do not bring people with you into EOIR space unless they are required to be present for your hearing. Remember that the immigration court may limit entry.
