Seeing Red or Blue? USCIS Replaces Secure Ink Color
On July 1, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began using a new secure blue ink for some of its secure stamps. If you are used to seeing red, it will soon go away as USCIS will be retiring and no longer using red ink going forward.
USCIS 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 I-94 Stamp
With this change, USCIS will still continue to use regular black ink on stamps such as the: Approval Stamp, Denial Stamp, Director’s Signature Stamp, and other USCIS similar documents. As you are on the lookout for potentially fraudulent I-9 documents, be sure to inform your team of these important changes from USCIS.
Be sure to join Equifax Workforce Solutions on September 10th for an upcoming webinar to be presented with Jackson Lewis Law Firm titled, Top 10 Mistakes in I-9 Compliance.
