IF-1 Classification: Is that approval?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I had my interview last Jan 3, today I got a letter from Homeland Security where I had my interview done stating this:

New Classification Symbol: IF-1

Decision

Your request for the removal of condition basis of your permanent resident status has been approved. You are deemed to be a lawful permanent resident of the United States as of the date of your original admission or adjustment of status.

A passport endorsement will be placed in your passport upon renewal, which will allow you employment and travel until you receive your new alien registration receipt card in the mail.

It is necessary that you make an appointment through the INFOPASS-Immigration Information Office. Please make an appointment at www.infopass.gov once you have renewed your passport. You must present this letter and your passport at that time.

Sincerely,

(signed and printed name of Field Office Director)

My questions are:

1. What really is IF-1? I'm just confused because I did not get any email notification or touches on my online case status.

2. I already have my passport stamped (90-days extension) on my interview, do I still need to have my passport stamped again?


You were never a mistake. You were my realization.

Hi Chipsahoy,

Thanks for consulting visajourney. I personally have not faced any condition that involves any term named IF-1. I am still to apply for my lifting of conditions. I did some research though, looks like its a approval but its just a condition that got changed from a fiance visa , till you dont get your 10 yr green card. I may be wrong. I hope sopme other members wd come in and remark here. You can go through these links and try to understand for yourself.

"IF1 Alien whose record of admission is created upon the conclusion of a valid marriage contract after entering as a fiance or fiancée of a U.S. citizen. Sec. 214(d) of the INA as amended by PL-91-225 (Apr. 7, 1970) - ((Adjusted status))" ...

"When the petition is approved, you will get a letter from USCIS (INS) notifying you of the decision. Your new permanent status will be coded depending on your original status. CR-1 becomes IR-1, CF-1 becomes IF-1 etc. If there is a K2 involved, they will get a separate letter from USCIS (INS) notifying them of their status, which will be a IF2, or "Immigrant Fiance(e) 2". ". I found this at LINK

hi there..I just looked at my 10 year green card(I received it in june of 2010) and it is category IF-1 so you have the right classification...If they told you to go get a stamp I would go if I were you...it could take a couple of months to get your greencard..

but YAY!! congrats! just citizenship left!(if you're doing it)

@Christera22: Thanks for your input. Very informative.

@Shawna7: Thanks for taking a time to look at your letter. I really appreciate :) About the infopass, I will give USCIS a ring first thing in the morning to inquire about the stamp. Thanks again.
