Lost DOS Case ID Number

We are trying to pay the $165 immigration fee on ELIS to get Greencard, but we cannot find DOS Case ID Number that is needed in order to create an account to pay the $165 immigration fee.

 

I tried entering the IV Case Number as DOS Case ID Number but all the digits do not fit

 

I called USCIS and they say that my Husband was supposed to receive paper from Embassy Interview and that has the DOS Case ID number. My Husband says he received a sealed envelope and paper stuck on top of it. He gave the entire thing to US customs when he arrived in USA. My Husband's reading and writing English is still not perfect :-)

 

USCIS does not know the DOS Case ID number, they say call the US Embassy in New Delhi. I called the US Embassy in New Delhi and they say that DOS Case ID Number is same as IV Case Number

 

BUT

 

the DOS Case ID Number that the person at the US Embassy gave is very similar to the IV Case Number. I thought they shortened it so it can fit in the field where it says DOS Case ID Number.

 

Now I came home from work and I am trying to register on ELIS website and I keep getting error "You have entered an invalid DOS Case ID. Please recheck your USCIS Immigrant Fee handout from the Department of State (DOS). The DOS Case ID should look like the following example: ABC1234567890"

 

 

 

Is there another way to pay the $165 fee without going through so many hoops?

The number you want is three letters plus some numbers. Sometimes the number isn't long enough, so you have to add a zero. Like mine had the pattern LND11111111 so I had to add a 0 like LND011111111 for it to work in ELIS.  I think it says about adding the 0 in on the right hand side of the signup somewhere, but it took me forever to notice so it's not very obvious. :/

There was an Immigrant Data Summary sheet on the outside - he should have photocopied that, or scanned it and emailed it to himself.

errata/datapoints in my wife's Immigrant Data Summary (that you need) :
A-Number - reads like A123456789, printed in visa as registration number without the A, and to be used in ELIS, you morph it, adding a zero, so it reads A0123456789

CASE ID - That's the consular casefile number. My wife's number is a combo letters/digits, composed of 13 characters. However, in the VISA, there are 2 extra digits there, 01, to the right of the consular casefile number.

So, I think if you morph both numbers a bit, you'll have 'the right combo' to continue in ELIS.

Go Get Em, and Good Luck !

Not A0123456789 because it needs to be 9 digits in total.  More like A012345678

 

DOS number is the NVC number.  You may add zeros before a number to make it work, the A# or the DOS#, but do not add zeros after.

BINGO!!! This works.

 

When I called US Embassy they did not mention the 0 in LND011111111, but now that I tried it, I was able to create an account and pay the $165.

 

Thanks once again, you guys are grrrrrrrreat!!!!!!!!!
