The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (the “USCIS”) division of the Homeland Security Department annually mails over three million immigration-related documents to its customers.
Now, in order to ensure secure delivery of those documents, the USCIS has collaborated with the U.S. Postal Service (the “USPS”) on the Secure Mail Initiative, which uses USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation to deliver green cards, work permits and other vital documents in a safe, secure and timely manner.
This initiative also enables the USCIS to confirm that essential documents were delivered to the correct address and it allows customers to track the status of their documents at the USPS Website .
After receiving a notice of approval pertinent to any immigration-related application, customers may call the USCIS national customer service center at 800-375-5283 to request a tracking number for their immigration documents. Customers need to provide information from their I-797 receipt for the notice of approval.
