I need help finding out Alien #, is it the same # listed on your visa as "Registration Number" with 8 digits #?

DOS case ID: Is it the same as your IV case #, starting the 3 letters following by 10 digits #?

I was told that the A# was the registration number with an A and a zero in front of it - like this: A-012345678

As for DoS#, the infopass officer wasn't able to answer that question so I hope someone can!

You would think they would give you these numbers clearly since they're related to you paying them money...
