Hi everyone!

I am filling out my papers for adjustment of status right now. On almost every form (I-485, G-325A etc.) they are asking for my alien registration number.

I heard that it is the number on my NOA2 (I-797C, Notice of Action).

The number starts with a zero than 8 other digit numbers are following: A 0XX-XXX-XXX (nine digit number).

Now I realized that my visa has exactly the same number, but the zero in the front is missing: A XX-XXX-XXX (eight digit number).

On the I-693 document, which is already sealed by a civil surgeon, I wrote down the nine digit number.

Should I just write this number down on all other documents?

Should I attach a notice saying that the number in the NOA2 and on my visa differs from each other?

thanks for the help

They're the same number. Whether you write the 8 or 9 digit number is up to you. it's SUPPOSED to be all 9 digits but just like when you enter 09 in a calculator or excel cell it will reduce by removing the zero at the start. It's just the person who typed it on your visa couldn't be bothered with typing the leading 0.
