IM-#61 June 27, 2007  IM-#103 October 4, 2004,  IM-#142 November 6, 1998

If immigrant status cannot be determined from the USCIS document presented and the immigrant has no other acceptable documentation of immigrant status, advise the immigrant that:

  • classification under Section 207, 208, 212(d)(5) or 243(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act results in eligible status;
  • the immigrant may be eligible if acceptable verification is obtained; and
  • the immigrant may contact USCIS or otherwise obtain the necessary documentation.

Enter the NOD (no documentation) status and CS (client statement) on the Non-Citizen Information (FMML) screen. Record a comment regarding the lack of documentation.
