USCIS Begins Issuing Form I-94 with ADIT Stamps Indicating Lawful Permanent Residence Status by Mail

A new operational process allows applicants to obtain proof of their Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status without requiring an in-person appearance at a field office.

This new process allows for the more timely resolution in providing evidence of status to LPR's for employment purposes, reducing the burden on applicants and increasing field office resources for other important purposes. Please note that in some instances an in-person appointment may still be required if the resident does not have a usable photo in the USCIS system or if their address or identity cannot be confirmed.

Proof of Lawful Status

LPRs may require temporary evidence of their lawful status (including employment authorization) in the following situations:

  • They do not have their green card; or
  • Their Form I-90, Form I-751, or Form N-400 are still pending adjudication and their Green Card and extension notice have expired.

Form I-9 Implications

A Form I-94 with ADIT ("Alien Documentation, Identification, and Telecommunication", also known as a temporary I-551) stamp is an acceptable List A document. It is considered a "receipt" insofar as it is temporary proof of permanent status and documented using the title "Form I-94 with Form I-551 Stamp and Photo." This document may be used for Form I-9 and E-Verify purposes.

Examples of how the Form I-94 with photo and ADIT stamp appears are shown below.
