NSEERS registration upon entry

Country: Iran

Hello Everyone,

I couldn't find out if anyone has received a similar notice from searching the forums . . .

We got a notice last week that says we need to submit proof of registration with NSEERS (national security entry exit registration system). The notice said there should be proof on the I-94 and a FIN # on the I-94. Our I-94 has no such proof. Called and talked to numerous people yesterday, but no one can tell me anything helpful (or consistent for that matter).

Has any one received a similar notice?

Was anyone else registered with NSEERS when they arrived in the U.S.?

I had never heard of NSEERS before this notice. I am scared that we were never registered at the airport when we arrived and CIS is going to say it is our fault:(

Wish I could help you more.

It is unclear to me whether USCIS usually registers people automatically and you got missed, or if you received the notice in error. From what I read, the registration is only appicable to non-immigrants who do not intend to stay in the U.S. for more than 30 days. If you are a K-visa holder, perhaps someone somewhere in your entry process misunderstood the qualifications to the non-immigrant status of the visa. You do not have a timeline, so I do not know on what type of visa you came to the U.S.

I would contact your local office from the following:

If I'm not mistaken, this is special registration required for immigrants from certain countries (Arab/Muslim). My husband had a Fin# on his I-94 and once he was here, we registered him again.

Check out USCIS


When you mail in to register your spouse, make sure to use certified mail, so that you have some proof of having sent it. The officer at our AOS noted that my husband had been registered as required.

Good luck!
