When an applicant submits only an admission stamp or parole stamp in an unexpired
foreign passport, follow these steps to enter the evidence in SSNAP (for a description
of only an admission stamp or parole stamp, see RM 10211.135D and RM 10211.195).
On the "Proof of Legal Alien Status" screen, select "ADM Stamp in Unexp Foreign Passport"
from the Primary DHS Document drop-down menu.
NOTE: If you enter the same evidence for both identity and lawful alien status, select
the same drop-down option "ADM Stamp in Unexp Foreign Passport” on the "Proof of Identity"
screen and select the prefill button.
EXCEPTIONS: Foreign students (F1) and exchange visitors (J1) must submit evidence of nonimmigrant
status in combination with either the I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant
(F1) Student) or DS-2019 (Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J1) Status).
For instructions on how to enter these documents in the SSNAP, follow RM 10211.295 and RM 10211.365 respectively.
