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:
- Department of Homeland Security’s Parole Stamp
- Temporary I-551 Alien Documentary Identification and Telecommunication (ADIT) Stamp
- Refugee Stamp
- Asylum Stamp
- Initial / Replacement Form I-94 Stamp
Employers reviewing employee documents for Form I-9 employment eligibility purposes should take note of the change.
