Are you a citizen through naturalization or by birth?

Every naturalized citizen of the United States have an a number. Check your naturalization certificate for your A number.

Every non-US citizen is an alien in the eyes of the immigration people.

The A stands for Alien, hence every alien who has ever dealt with the INS or USCIS has an A number.

Once an alien becomes a United States citizen, the A number is a thing of the past, pretty much the same as if you had been a prisoner in a Nazi camp . . . no need to recall that number at any time as it is not relevant anymore.

So if you are not a US citizen, you do have an alien number. If you are a naturalized US citizen, you might have had an A number in the past but now that you are a USC you don't have one anymore.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Your post is very unclear. Try one more time by explaining who the US citizen is (if any of you is a USC and who the alien is. USCs have no A number, aliens who dealt with USCIS or INS have one. If whoever of you is the alien doesn't have an A number because no contact with USCIS has been made yet, write "none yet."

Hi,

Since I had been in the US,I used the A# mentioned on my work authorization card.By your explanation I am correct then.

But I definitely remember someone sometime back mentioning that it was the number mentioned on the NOA2 ,that is in the format 'A-number'.

But I did not use that anywhere since we would be getting to know it only after we get some sort of receipt from the USCIS ,right?

Hope I did the right thing!

Sorry about that. I am the US citizen, my fiance is a British Citizen. He has been here on a 6-month tourist visa but was not able to work, so I do not think he has an A#. If he did, would it be on his visa?

It may be on his visa, but probably not. Often the K1 finacee will not have an A number at the beginning of the process. You should be fine.

An "A" number is assigned to all intended immigrants via a petition to the USCIS. If a person arrives on a non-immigrant visa that did not require a pre-requisite petition (ie tourist visa) then no "A" number. If an alien arrives on a non-immigrant visa that did require a pre-requisite petition (I-129f for "K" visa) then an "A" number is assigned at the time the petition is submitted. For most going through the "K" visa process the initial G-325A will indicate NONE for a "A" number

Wow, this is a really harsh comparison. I doubt the visa process is ANYTHING like being in a Nazi camp. :bonk:

And where did I state that the visa process is ANYTHING like being in a Nazi camp? Nowhere. So what's your point?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Actually, right here:

To me, it sounds like you're saying once an alien loses the Alien Number, it is the same as losing the number assigned to prisoners in Nazi camps. Honestly, I don't know what you really intended. I read and re-read your post, and I can't think of any other way to interpret it. From your response, it sounds like you meant something other than what I inferred, but your comparison struck me as a rather odd juxtaposition since the visa process seems so unlike a prison camp.

hi. I'm also confuse w/ this also .

I'm actually filing my G-325A and it says File Number A__________ =======> is this the number from my NAturalization certificate?

I will be naturalized this Friday, I;m wondering if they're going to give me the same # as my Alien #.

and on the bottom page their asking Alien Registration Number A__________ ====> I do have an alien # but since I'll be naturalized soon, do I need to write my old Alien # on that line or just write NONE?

Thank you!
