USCIS Provides Documentation after Notice of Immigration Judge and BIA Decides Migrants’ Legal Status

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is now providing documented evidence of status to certain new asylees and lawful permanent residents upon receiving notification that an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has granted status. However, individuals who have been granted asylum and lawful permanent resident status are still encouraged to contact the USCIS Contact Center to request their proof of status, as USCIS may not be notified in every case.

To make things easier for those who have been granted status by an immigration judge or the BIA, USCIS field offices may now provide documentation by mail instead of requiring an in-person appointment. This process eliminates an unnecessary burden for individuals who have already received their status. Starting from August 2022, USCIS began mailing Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record, with asylee stamps to certain individuals who have been granted asylum. Furthermore, USCIS has also been issuing Green Cards to some lawful permanent residents when notified of adjustment of status by the immigration judge or BIA.

The provision of documented evidence of status can help new asylees and lawful permanent residents to seek employment, travel, and obtain other benefits that they are entitled to.
