:help:

I searched the site, I found convincing, but conflicting answers. Which is the elusive "A" number?

There is a number on the K-1 Visa that starts with "A" directly under PASSPORT NUMBER, this number is repeated at the bottom left corner of the Visa. In our case the number is AJ395XXX.

On the K-2 childs Visa there is a similar, but different, number.

Some say this is the "A" Number.

There is another number hand written on the back of the I-94 that starts with an "A"

For the K-1 Visa holder the number is: A 98 458 XXX

For the K-2 child the number is: PA: A 98 458 XXX

With the exception of the "PA:" these numbers are exactly the same.

We are filing for two AOS (K-1 and K-2) and one EA (I-765).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to have a delay because I used the wrong number!

Thanks in advance to all :thumbs:

And it doesn't really matter if you use the wrong number as I did. I used the visa number for all of them and the interviewing officer just corrected it - it didn't cause an RFE or any other problem. Good luck

We are filing for two AOS (K-1 and K-2) and one EA (I-765).

The A# S/B 9 digits, so you need to add a zero 098 458 XXX The K-2 doesn't have an A# at this point, so I would enter "NONE" on the child's I-485. I would assume the PA means parent's A#.

The A# probably is also on the I-129F approval notice, see if it is and does it match what was written on the I-94.

On my K1's NOA2 the A# starts with 0 but the one on I-94 doesn't use the 0. So I just use the one from NOA2.

Good luck! (F)

I had the same question as I filled out the I-485 (under a K-1) so I called USCIS and was told my wife does not have a A # (alien number) yet and to put "NONE" in the box. I did this so I will see what happens.

Good luck, Warren

I think you were given wrong info if your wife entered as a K-1. It should be on the petition approval notice and/or the back of the I-94.

Maria,

No, the A# is not the I-94 number. The I-94 number is pre-printed on the I-94, the A# will be hand-written by the CBP officer.

Yodrak

You find the A number on your I-94. Its basically your I-94 number

Good Luck! :thumbs:

Not to hijack, but is that I-94 the 11 digit number on the bottom of the form?
