A#

Recommended Posts

Hi all - will apply for my wife in February 7, 90 days before her Green Card date is 5/5/12. Have a couple questions:

1. If it's a PO box how did you send a tracking number (live in NYC so will send to Dallas)?

2. What is the A# that they want us to write on the form (The USCIS # on her green card or the A# that came on her K1 application). I just realized that when I applied for her ROC I used the A# assigned on her K1 and now the USCIS number that was on her 2 year conditional green card. They are book very different.

The A# is on the K-1 visa and then on the GC. It is a ni9ne digit number that looks like a SSN except that it is grouped as XXX-XXX-XXX. On the front of the GC it is under USCIS#. On the back it is after the "USA" and before the "MSC". For the K-1 it was above the beneficiary's name. It is a good idea to include this as that is the identification number for for her file with the USCIS. For tracfking to a PO box use express mail from the USPS or a return receipt with a certified letter.

Good Luck,

Dave

1. By paying for tracking. It's the same as a street address for tracking

2. USCIS# & A# are the same things. The NOA2 from the K1 will have her A# above her name. This should be the same as the USCIS# on the front her GC (or the A# on the back). If it's not the same there's been a mistake somewhere and you should include a letter stating that her K1 NOA2 had X number, and her GC has Y number. Otherwise her file is split in 2.

Wife and stepdaughter were assigned alien numbers doing their adjustment of status, that number never changed for us. Recall some people here reporting having two different alien numbers that really caused a major delay in their citizenship applications.

When after we get that certificate from the USCIS, then automatically receive a congratulations from the SS and a new SS card. Only only have to show that certificate to a certified DOS agent for identification only because we are already in that database. That is when I will believe this database is working.

What the problem is, too damned many government agencies, wasn't that here even 40 years ago. FBI did a fantastic job of catching German and Japanese saboteurs they call terrorists nowadays. With so many new government law enforcement agencies, just a mass amount of confusion as to whom is in charge. Bet 9/11 would have never occurred and it didn't during WW II.

Atfter WWII, the CIA was created and the Soviets already knew the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing so were able to steal our nuclear weapon secrets. So what do our idiots in congress do? Create more agencies. I give up. Welcomed to being bounced around between the USCIS, DOS, SS, and the NVC.
