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
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?
