New Process for Lawful Permanent Residents to Receive Temporary Evidence of Status by Mail

USCIS has introduced a new process for lawful permanent residents to receive temporary evidence of their status by mail. This process allows applicants to receive an Alien Documentation, Identification and Telecommunication (ADIT) stamp without physically visiting a field office. Applicants can request temporary evidence of status by contacting the USCIS Contact Center, where an immigration services officer will verify their identity, mailing address, and eligibility for the temporary evidence. USCIS may issue temporary evidence of status in the form of an ADIT stamp with a validity period determined based on the applicant’s situation. This new process is expected to reduce the burden on applicants and increase availability of field office resources. However, some applicants may still need to appear in person at a USCIS field office to receive temporary evidence of their status.
