UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES NEW SECURE INK
On July 1, 2014, U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began using a new secure blue ink for many of its secure stamps. The older secure red ink will be retired and no longer used by USCIS on the effective date.
On July 1, 2014, USCIS began using the following list of stamps with secure blue ink:
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Parole Stamp
- Temporary I-551 Alien Documentary Identification and Telecommunication (ADIT) Stamp
- Refugee Stamp (Section 207)
- Asylum Stamp (Section 208)
- Initial / Replacement Form I-94 Stamp
Employers should be aware of this recent change in secure ink color when examining acceptable documents presented by employees during the Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification process. Lists of acceptable documents appear on the last page of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
