Employers and foreign nationals should not be concerned – beginning July 1, 2014, USCIS switched its red secure ink for blue secure ink. This change will affect the following stamps:

  1. Department of Homeland Security’s Parole Stamp
  2. Temporary I-551 Alien Documentary Identification and Telecommunication (ADIT) Stamp
  3. Refugee Stamp
  4. Asylum Stamp
  5. Initial / Replacement Form I-94 Stamp

Employers reviewing employee documents for Form I-9 employment eligibility purposes should take note of the change.
