Given the plethora of websites and businesses out there that profess to represent USCIS, it is not surprising that many people are confused as to where the immigration office actually is. In New Jersey, the main USCIS District Office is located at the Peter Rodino Federal Building, 970 Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey 07102. The current District Director is Mr. John Thompson. The Field Office Director is Ms. Kimberly Zanotti. There is also a Sub-District Office that services Southern New Jersey. The Mount Laurel Field Office is located at 530 Fellowship Road, Mount Laurel, NJ 08054. In order to visit either Field Office, it is now necessary to schedule an appointment in advance. This can be done by visiting USCIS.gov and scheduling an "INFOPASS" appointment. The general phone number for USCIS is 1-800-375-5283. Generally speaking, most forms will be filed by mail and not in person. However, some important reasons why one might want to visit the Field Office in New Jersey if one is a New Jersey Resident, include securing evidence of permanent resident status in one's passport; applying for an interim work permit; or making an inquiry into one's case. This is, of course, in addition to reporting to Newark or Mount Laurel for a scheduled interview.
