Anybody with an appointment to go to USCIS in Newark for an interview or court appearance should be aware that the wait to get into the building can be extremely long. Due to security issues, everyone, including attorneys, must go through metal detectors to be screened for weapons, etc. During the winter, the lines and wait become longer than usual because individuals must take off their winter coats, jackets, scarves, hats, etc. prior to going through the metal detector. Additionally, security guards must repeat their security protocol to every group that is allowed in to be processed. Occasionally, entrants do not speak English and are unable to follow directions, resulting in even further delay and frustration. I would therefore recommend that individuals planning on traveling to Newark give themselves ample time to get to the city, find parking, and get on line. I always instruct my clients to arrive one hour early and especially in the winter, dress warm because you will be waiting….
