The US introduces changes in the request for temporary evidence | The USA Print

The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCISfor its acronym in English) established this Thursday the sending of a temporary evidence by mail for lawful permanent residents who do not have their green card, also called “green card” or “green cards” or that have a procedure in process and the document has already expired.

The office decision is made to save steps and improve processes in the field offices.

“Legal permanent residents can receive temporary evidence of your lawful permanent resident status by mail rather than physically visiting a field office to receive an Alien Documentation, Identification and Telecommunications (ADIT) stamp (also known as I-551),” the office said in a statement.

USCIS explains that lawful permanent residents are entitled to proof of status and may require temporary proof of status in the form of an ADIT stamp in any of the following situations.

  • They don’t have their Green card

  • Your Form I-90 (Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card); Form I-751 (Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence) or Form N-400 (Application for Naturalization) is still pending adjudication and its Green card and extension notice have expired

What will the process be like?

The office explains that once legal permanent residents call the Contact Center of USCIS in order to request a temporary evidence Upon your status, an officer will verify your identity, physical mailing address, and whether that address can receive UPS or FedEx Priority Mail.

The resident will then be scheduled for an appointment, if necessary, or submit a request to the local office of USCIS to issue the ADIT seal. If an appointment is not necessary, the office explanation continues, then the local office will review the request for temporary evidence and will mail the applicant a Form I-94 with the ADIT stamp, the DHS stamp, and a printed photo of the lawful permanent resident obtained from the information systems.

“USCIS determines whether the applicant should receive an ADIT stamp and has the discretion to determine the validity period based on lawful permanent resident status (not to exceed one year, unless otherwise specified by regulation or policy)” , clarifies the office in the statement.

Likewise, it points out that those permanent residents who do not have a usable photo in the USCIS or whose address or identity cannot be confirmed by an immigration officer, will have to attend an appointment in person at a local office, including those who present an urgent need.

“The new process will allow USCIS emit temporary evidence lawful permanent resident status in a timely manner without requiring a scheduled field office appointment, thus reducing the burden on our applicants and increasing the availability of field office resources,” the office concluded about the novelty in the procedure .
