A-Number is 9 Already Digits but Not Working for USCIS Fee Payment

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know why I can't seem to enter my A-number on the USCIS Ellis website to pay my immigrant fee?

My number is already A + 9 numbers but keep getting an error saying it's incorrect. I also tried adding 0 after the letter A to no avail.

Thanks!

Thanks but I've already followed all the instructions, even adding a 0 next to the A even though my number is already A+ 9 digits long.

ok. when you arrive in the U.S, you can go to the local USCIS office (set up infopass appointment) and ask why it is not working or you can go to the US embassy/consulate in your country if you are still in your country.

I just called USCIS and they say it's a problem with their website.

They did ask for my original receipt number (from NOA2) and gave me a case number related to the problem.

They said they'll email me in a couple of weeks once the problem with the website has been fixed.

This shouldn't affect entry to the US and if the fee hasn't been paid before POE, they'll remind me to do it upon arrival.

Yeah, it won't affect your entry. They just won't start creating your Green Card until you pay. Your stamped visa in your passport serves as your Green Card for a year from POE so don't get too worried yet.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

It won't affect your entry to the US. POE will stamp I-551 annotation which is good for one year. It would give you time to pay fee thru the ELIS website in order to get a plastic card. I-551 annotation allows you to travel and re-enter the US. Also, it allows you to work right away after you get ssn.
