We are pleased to announce a proactive initiative wherein we are now actively generating and delivering documented evidence of immigration status to specific new asylees and lawful permanent residents. This process is triggered upon our receipt of notification confirming a favorable decision from an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). While individuals granted asylum and lawful permanent resident status are advised to reach out to the USCIS Contact Center for proof of status, it's important to note that USCIS may not receive notification in every case.
In an effort to streamline the process and alleviate unnecessary burdens on those who have been granted status by an immigration judge or the BIA, our field offices can now dispatch this documentation via mail. This eliminates the need for asylees and lawful permanent residents to schedule in-person appointments.
Commencing in August 2022, USCIS initiated this endeavor by mailing Form I-94, the Arrival/Departure Record, inclusive of asylee stamps, to specific individuals who received asylum from an immigration judge or the BIA. Furthermore, Permanent Resident Cards, commonly known as Green Cards, are being issued to some lawful permanent residents upon notification of the grant of adjustment of status by the immigration judge or BIA.
This initiative aims to facilitate the process for new asylees and lawful permanent residents, enabling them to pursue employment, travel, and access other entitled benefits with the appropriate documentation in hand.
For further information or to request proof of status, individuals are encouraged to contact the USCIS Contact Center.
