USCIS kicks off new Electronic Immigration System program

USCIS says the new web-based system should make the benefit application process more streamlined.

While living in the U.S. enables you with the ability to send money to your home, it also carries other benefits that you may be able to take advantage of by filling out an application and sending it in to immigration officials. However, because the process can take a long time and be somewhat complicated, many people who were eligible to receive benefits haven't done so.

However, thanks to the implementation of a new program, government officials are hopeful more people will apply to get what they rightfully deserve.

Recently, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services launched its Electronic Immigration System, or ELIS for short. Thanks to the functionality and convenience of the internet, the program is expected to make the application process for immigration benefits more seamless by providing more accurate customer service in one convenient place.

Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the USCIS, indicated the new program has the potential to help millions of people.

"Today marks a significant milestone in our agency’s history," said Mayorkas. "We have launched the foundation for the web-based future of our agency and our immigration benefits system. USCIS ELIS will transform how we interact with our customers and how we manage the 6 to 7 million applications we receive each year."

In the past, in order to apply for benefits, it traditionally had to be done through the mail. This led to many applications being delayed for a significant period of time due to high volume, complicated approval processes and a significant amount of paperwork to sort through. With the implementation of the new program, you'll be able to apply and pay for fees online, thus shortening the processing time. In addition, if your residency status has changed, you'll be able to update it after registering for an account and editing your user profile data. The program will also enable USCIS officials to respond to requests electronically so questions can be answered quickly.

"USCIS employees believe in the transformation of our agency from a paper-based to an online environment," said Mayorkas. "It is through their vision, unwavering commitment, and hard work that we have reached this important milestone."

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has set up a virtual tour so that you can learn more about the new system, how to set up an account and determine if you're eligible to receive certain benefits.
