USCIS PROVIDING DOCUMENTS AFTER NOTICE OF IMMIGRATION JUDGE AND BIA DECISIONS
As of May 4, 2023, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will now affirmatively create and provide documented evidence of their status to certain new asylees and lawful permanent residents upon our receiving notification that an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has granted status.
Individuals granted asylum and lawful permanent resident status are still instructed and encouraged to contact the USCIS Contact Center to request their proof of status because USCIS may not be notified in every case.
USCIS field offices may now be able to provide this documentation by mail instead of having asylees and lawful permanent residents schedule an in-person appointment, eliminating an unnecessary burden to an individual who has been granted their status by an immigration judge or the BIA. USCIS began this effort in August 2022 by mailing Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record with asylee stamps to certain individuals who have been granted asylum by an immigration judge or the BIA.
If you have any questions about this process, please schedule a consultation today with one of our expert immigration attorneys.
