Lost my passport

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am an immigrant from Jamaica that recently got married and my wife just filed to adjust my status.

I just sent in all the paperwork including my I-94 admission record.

The issue is I don't have my canceled passport that I used to enter the country.

I have a new, updated passport but it doesn't include my original visa.

Should I be worried? When I am called in for an interview, should I bring a police report?

Just to clarify, you renewed your passport with the Jamaican consulate when in the U.S., they gave you your new passport and returned your old canceled one too, and you lost the old one with your original U.S. visa, right?

I'll let others chime in on what to do, but do you have a photocopy of the visa?

If your passport with the cancelled visa is missing and you are called in for an interview, then yes, bring the police report. You have the I-94 which would have been issued at admissions and you have a valid passport so the only real concern would be what happened to your missing passport. If you believe searching for it might locate it, then do that. If you have good reason to suspect it was stolen or was dropped outside, then you need to document that in case you are required to provide it to USCIS.

You may be approved for your green card without an interview, but it would be good to have the police report all the same if there is a passport out there with a used visa that can be mis-used.

If you are searching for it, remember to check down beside car seats and inside books or other sorts of documents which you had out at the same time and among which it might have accidentally slipped.

Also, you may wish to make photocopies of everything in the future just so you do have copies of something if it goes missing.

Good luck in finding it.
