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.
