There should be little difficulty in obtaining age information from the arrival records
from the INS district office in these cases.
Occasionally, the INS district office will furnish age information from the alien
registration record rather than from the arrival records. This may be because the
claimant did not specify the desired age information record or because in a few cases,
the visa and other arrival information had not been associated with the alien files.
In the latter event, if the claimant has specifically requested age from the arrival
record, the INS district office would have attempted to obtain the information from
the Verification Center.
