As of March 14, 2020, this office is no longer closed.

 

March 4, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement – Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE-ERO) has temporarily closed its Seattle Field Office after an employee from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) exhibited flu-like symptoms after possible exposure to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). ICE-ERO recommends anyone who visited the Seattle Field Office, located at 12500 Tukwila International Boulevard, on or after Feb. 24 and develops flu-like symptoms should begin a self-quarantine immediately and contact local health authorities for further guidance.

Any appointments missed due to the office closure will be rescheduled. Please contact your Deportation Officer in the Non-Detained Unit once the office has reopened to reschedule your appointment. The Non-Detained Unit will work with attorneys and their clients to ensure reporting is scheduled and documented. The Non-Detained Unit can be reached by email at Seattle.Outreach@ice.dhs.gov.

To post an immigration bond for an alien being detained by ICE, you must post the bond at 1623 E J Street, Suite 2, Tacoma, WA 98421, Mondays through Fridays (except public holidays) between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Education and precautions are the strongest tools against infection. Keep yourself apprised of the latest facts by visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 website. Continue to practice good health habits, refrain from handshakes or hugs as greetings, and clean hands and surfaces appropriately.

ICE-ERO will provide further updates as the situation develops and will continue to follow CDC guidance in response to this situation.
