绿卡基础知识:移民局online Status解释

当移民局收到你的申请之后,会寄给你一张的收据 (I-). 在收据的左上角有收据号码 (RECEIPT NUMBER),是 3 个字母和 10 个数字的组合,分为 4 组,如:LIN-07-256-50001.
  LIN 指明移民局服务中心
  07 – Fiscal year (’s 08 beginning at 10/1/07)
  256 – number of business days in the fiscal year
  50001 – sequent number of the receipt 

其它的移民局服务中心有:
  EAC – Vermont Service Center
  LIN – Nebraska Service Center
  MSC – Missouri Service Center
  SRC – Texas Service Center
   – California Service Center

如果还没有收到收据,但申请费被取走了,也可以从支票的背面获知 Receipt#.
先去银行下载 canceled check 的 image,存到自己的计算机里。然后仔细辨认支票背面的东东。你应该看到类似于下面的 5 行,排列得非常整齐:
  For Credit to U.S. Treasury
  DOJ/USCIS X9 152303711393
  092206 LINHMV01 70-01-0103
  —————————-
  LIN0627052000
最后一行红颜色的就是 Receipt Number, 其上的黑体为 Notice Date. 
如上:收据日期是 9/22/2006,收据号码是 LIN0627052000.

有了收据号码,你就可以在移民局网站查其状态。
在注册之后,你还可以进入帐户查看 LUD (Last Update Date). LUD 只是提供一个可能更新一点的日期,而申请状态是不变的。故有人称之为 Soft Update.

除了网上查,你还可以通过 (800) 375-5283 电话。
收据号中的 LIN 就是直接按 5-4-6,因为 “L” 在话机键上对应 “5” 键,”I” 是 “4”,”N” 是 “6”.

如果你的支票是交的 I-140 的费,而背面的收据号查出来的却是 的状态,那么你可能是辨认号码有误,或是移民局盖错了章。只好等正式的收据了,来解开这个迷。

下面列出了一些常见的 Online Status 及其释义。

有的时候,你都收到了移民局的邮件,而在线状态还没有更新。这并不影响你手中的 USCIS 文件的法律效果。
另外,MSC 开头的申请,有不是没有上网,就是经常不及时更新的问题。你会收到这样的信息。
