USCIS Secure Mail Initiative

Posted On: June 2, 2011

To help create a more safe, secure and timely way of delivering immigration documents, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently implemented the Secure Mail Initiative (SMI).

The new SMI was created through a partnership between USCIS and USPS which utilizes priority mail and delivery confirmation of permanent resident cards, documents for travel and employment authorization. Additionally, SMI allows individuals to track and stay up-to-date on the status of their package through USPS tracking. Once an individual has been notified of an approval, they can call the USCIS Customer Service Center at 800-375-5283 to request tracking information. After receiving the tracking number, individuals can log on to www.usps.com to track their package.
