USCIS Will Start Requiring Signatures and Identification to Receive Certain Documents

Share This Post: facebooktwitterLinkedIn

In April, USCIS announced the agency will start mailing permanent resident cards, employment authorization documents, and travel booklets using a secure delivery service through the U.S. Postal Service.  The agency will begin using the service to mail these items to applicants who have changed their address while their application is pending or whose documents have been returned to USCIS as undeliverable.  USCIS will then roll out the new process for all other applicants.

Applicants will have to present identification and sign for these items upon delivery. Applicants may also authorize others to receive documents on their behalf using a USPS form, PS Form 3801, Standing Delivery Order.  Accounts can be created online at USCIS.gov or USPS.com to track the delivery of these documents.

Clients of Joseph & Hall P.C., P.C. who will be filing applications in the future will be able to choose between having the documents mailed to them at home or at the firm’s address.

Please contact us if you have any questions about this matter vis-à-vis your pending or soon to be filed case.
