Immigrant Fee - How to find out the A-Number and the Department of State (DOS) Case ID number

    Hello,
    My mom got her immigrant visa and is now in the US. We got a letter stating that we have to pay the $165 immigrant fee before she can get her physical green card. The problem is that she doesn't have the A number of the DOS Case ID number which she was supposed to get at the US embassy.

    Any tips on how to obtain these numbers?

    Thanks

    You can find the A-number by reading her visa. Below IV Case Number, you will see Registration Numer. This number is her A-number. The A-number should be 9 digits including the A. If it is 8 digits, just add a "0" between A and the following number.

    To get the DOS ID number, your mom needs to open an account on USCIS ELIS here https://elis.uscis.dhs.gov/cislogin...CODE=0x00000000&URL=/&AUTHNLEVEL=&OLDSESSION=

    She will need her IV CAse Number (see the visa) and the A-number. Once she registers on USCIS ELIS, she will be able to pay the 165$ fees.
