DHS/USCIS/PIA-056 USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS)

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) operates the USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS). USCIS ELIS was originally developed to serve as a public-facing electronic filing system supporting the submission of benefit request forms. USCIS ELIS also served as the internal case management system for USCIS adjudicators to efficiently process benefit request forms. USCIS ELIS was recently redesigned to exclusively serve as an internal electronic case management system for electronically filed benefit request forms and certain paper forms. MyUSCIS Account Experience replaced all aspects of the public-facing USCIS ELIS. USCIS is updating and reissuing the USCIS ELIS PIA to discuss the shift from supporting the public-facing electronic filing system to serving solely as an internal case management system with new functionalities and system interconnections. This PIA replaces the previously issued DHS/USCIS/PIA-056 published on May 17, 2016. As USCIS ELIS adds other forms and services, USCIS will update this PIA and its appendices accordingly.
