Hi All, I'm in the process of petitioning for a status change for my wife. She lost her stamped passport. What she recalls is that her visa from 1994 was issued in a card format. When we searched online to see how visas appeared, she saw the b1/b2 border crossing card (BCC) and recalls that this is what she received in mexico city US Embassy in 1994. Does anyone have any proof or knowledge of these visa cards being issued in 1994? thank you in advance!

this may or may not help.. I was issued one for the first time in 2004 and it was definitely a CC card type format. I know it was 10 years later, just trying to help.

It was not the BBBCC (B1/B2/Border Crossing Card) style that is currently being issued. The current ones are smaller, the size of a credit card. In 1994, the BBBCC was a stand-alone visa that was separate from the passport. It had a light brown background and was about the size of a passport page -- much larger than the current cards. They were machine-readable, but did not have an RFID chip like the current ones hav. Not sure how knowing what they looked like will help you with the AOS, but hope this info helps somehow.

Files an I 102 to get a duplicate I 94.

What is needed is evidence of inspected entry.
