USCIS 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

The new stamp (with blue ink) replaces the red USCIS ADIT stamp found on page 39 of the Carrier Information Guide May 2014.

The Carrier Information Guide can be found at: Information Guide- English_0.pdf
