Sample U.S. Immigrant Visa

A U.S. immigrant visa sticker is placed in the beneficiary’s passport. It has the following pertinent information:

  • Issuing post name
    The U.S. consulate or embassy that issued the U.S. immigrant visa.
  • IV Case Number
    The case number assigned by NVC.
  • IV Category
    Indicates the category under which the beneficiary received the visa. This is also called class of admission.
  • Registration Number
    This is the same as the “A-Number”.
  • IV Expires On
    Immigrant visa expires within six months of issuance.

Once the immigrant visa holder travels to the U.S., a CBP officer will endorse it, and it will serve as a temporary I-551 as evidence of permanent residence for one year.
