USCIS Message: Redesigned Form Series I-797 and Form I-512L


Dear Stakeholder,

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has redesigned Form Series I-797 (including Form I-797, Notice of Action, Form I-797A, Notice of Action, Form I-797B, Notice of Action, and Form I-797F, Transportation Letter) and Form I-512L, Authorization for Parole of an Alien into the United States. Form I-797C, Notice of Action, is a non-secure form and is not part of this enhancement effort.

The redesign includes enhanced security features to help deter fraud and a unique color in the notice header for each form type.

The new versions of these forms will have a revision date of 08/01/16 in the lower right corner, but previously issued letters and notices are still valid.

USCIS anticipates that the redesigned forms will begin being used as follows:
  • January/February 2017
  • Form I-797A, Notice of Action
  • Form I-797F, Transportation Letter

  • July 2017
  • Form I-797, Notice of Action

  • December 2017
  • Form I-512L, Authorization for Parole of an Alien Into the United States

  • November 2017
  • Form I-797B, Notice of Action

Kind Regards,
USCIS Public Engagement Division
