FORM G-639

The USCIS centralized FOIA office receives, tracks, and processes all USCIS FOIA requests to ensure transparency within our agency. There are a number of immigration records available by request from USCIS; however, some records can only be obtained from the U.S. Department of State (DOS) or other DHS components such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Customs and Border Protection (CBP).


Prior to filing any petitions or applications with USCIS or U.S. Embassy abroad, it could be useful to request a copy of your immigration file. Any foreign national, U.S. citizen, or green card holder is within his or her rights to do so.

Adjustment of Status – For individuals filing a Form I-485 to Adjust to Permanent Resident Status or to Register Permanent Residence, USCIS requires you to submit a copy of your official stamped passport to prove your last lawful entry into the United States. USCIS may require additional documentation after the initial filing of your Form I-485. You should only submit a FOIA request for documents for which you do not have access.

 Naturalization – For individuals filing a U.S. Citizenship Application Form N-400 to obtain U.S. citizenship (naturalization), USCIS requires your entry/exit information to/from the United States for the past five years. This information can be obtained by reviewing the entry/exit stamps in your passport. USCIS may require additional documentation after the initial filing of your Form N-400. You should only submit a FOIA request for documents for which you do not have access.


Answer all questions fully and accurately. If a question does not apply to you type or print “N/A,” unless otherwise directed. If your answer to a question which requires a numeric response is zero or none type or print “None,” unless otherwise directed.


Expedite Requests

Requests to have your Form G-639 expedited, or processed ahead of other previously received requests, are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. To seek expedited processing, you must submit a typed or printed statement explaining in detail the basis for requesting expedited processing, and your statement must include a certification that this information is complete, true, and correct to the best of your knowledge and belief.

Requests will be given expedited treatment whenever it is determined that they involve:

  1. Circumstances in which the lack of expedited treatment could reasonably be expected to pose an imminent threat to the life or physical safety of an individual;
  2. An urgency to inform the public about actual or alleged Federal government activity, if made by a person primarily engaged in disseminating information;
  3. The loss of substantial due process rights; or
  4. The matter is of widespread and exceptional media interest in which there exist possible questions about the government’s integrity which affect public confidence. Requests for expedited processing based upon this category must be submitted to the Senior Director of FOIA Operations, the Privacy Office, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Lane SW STOP -0655, Washington, DC 20598-0655.


Filing Fee: The fee charged for a FOIA/Privacy Act Request may vary. See the G-639 instructions (PDF) for more information. Please do not remit any fee payment at the time of your request. After receipt of your FOIA request, USCIS will contact you if any fees are required. Where To File?  National Records Center (NRC) FOIA/PA Office P.O. Box 648010 Lee’s Summit, MO 64064-8010 Fax: 816-350-5785 Email: Don’t forget to sign your form!  We will reject and return any unsigned form.

Igor Litvak is an outstanding lawyer in New York, and I am beyond impressed with his level of professionalism and expertise. I recently had the privilege of working with him on a complex legal matter, and his knowledge, dedication, and attention to detail were simply unparalleled. From our initial consultation to the resolution of my case, Mr. Litvak went above and beyond to ensure that I understood all aspects of the legal process and was always kept up to date on the status of my case. He provided sound advice, was always available to answer any questions, and took a personalized approach to my legal needs. Mr. Litvak is not only a brilliant attorney, but he is also an exceptional communicator and an empathetic advocate. He is a true professional who genuinely cares about his clients and their well-being, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services. If you want an attorney who is not only knowledgeable, but also compassionate, diligent, and committed to achieving the best possible outcome for his clients, then look no further than Mr. Litvak. He is simply the best.
