I-551 ADIT Stamps for Permanent Residents
May 18, 2020 § Leave a comment
Updated information on how lawful permanent residents (LPR) can obtain I-551 (ADIT) stamps for continued work authorization or international traveling amidst COVID-19 and USCIS Field Office closures:
-The USCIS Contact Center (1-800-375-5283) continues to schedule local office appointments for those seeking an ADIT stamp “where there is an emergent need.” What constitutes “emergent need” has yet to be defined.
-The caller should clearly explain why the request is being made (e.g., employment authorization, emergency international travel, etc.). Clients should be prepared to document why the stamp is needed to both the USCIS Contact Center representative and the local USCIS officer.
The USCIS and its local field offices aim to reopen on June 3, 2020.
