    kaffy got a reaction from cordoba2015 in I-551 Stamp for CR1/IR1   
    There seems to be some confusion recently with many new arrivals claiming they did not receive an I-551 stamp at POE. In my experience the entry stamp endorsement you receive IS the I-551 stamp.
    It should look like this:

    AUG 24 2008 = my arrival date
    CR1 = my visa class
    AUG 23 2010 = expiration date before which I need to apply to remove conditions (IR1 holders won't need to do this)
    Blanked section = alien registration number written in by CBP officer
    This stamp should be on the same/adjacent page to your visa and correspond with the "UPON ENDORSEMENT SERVES AS TEMPORARY 1-551 EVIDENCING PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR 1 YEAR" instruction printed on the visa under your photo.
    I hope this makes sense and eases some confusion. (and if anyone had a different experience or received a different stamp please share it)
