USCIS Implements Customer Identity Verification at Local Offices

by Immigration Attorney Osas Iyamu on May 30, 2013
Find me on:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on May 6th 2013, implemented a new program called Customer Identity Verification (CIV) in its field offices.

Individuals will be required to submit fingerprints and photographs when appearing at USCIS local offices for interviews or to receive evidence of an immigration benefit such as temporary travel documents, parole authorizations, and temporary green card stamps on passports or on Forms I-94 to show evidence of lawful permanent resident status.

USCIS staff will take two fingerprints and a photograph of the individual in order to re-verify their identity. After identity verification is satisfactorily completed, individuals will then proceed to their interviews or be issued their immigration documents.

This new procedure is in addition to the required visit to one of USCIS Application Support Centers (ASCs) to provide biometric data used by USCIS to determine eligibility for requested immigration benefits.

The new procedure will help protect against identity fraud and national security threats.

Individuals appearing for other purposes, such as an Infopass appointment or as the guest of an applicant or petitioner, will not be required to submit biometric data during their visit to USCIS local offices.
