The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service:  USCIS announced this Friday that it will gradually begin using the restricted delivery service, meaning, it will be necessary for someone to sign the delivery receipt for the official documents that the Immigration Agency makes through the Postal Service to immigrants such as Permanent Residence, Employment Authorization Card, Social Security among others.

At the time of delivery, the applicant must present an identification, and if the applicant is not at home for work reasons, for example, he has the option of designating a representative to sign his name by completing form PS3801-A of the Postal Service, or the permanent delivery order form (PDF)

Those interested in receiving your documentation can sign up for the USPS Informed Delivery to receive delivery status notifications. Another option is that by filling out the form, you can request that it be taken to a post office at a convenient date and time assigned on the USPS website and selected “Hold to Pick Up”. The restricted delivery of confirmation increases the security, integrity and efficiency of document delivery, says the statement

Information on how to track document delivery safely is available on the USCIS website: https: //www.uscis.gov/

It is important to note that this method of sending will begin as of April 30, and in its first phase will affect the documents that need to be forwarded because they have been returned or not delivered. In addition, according to the USCIS statement, applicants who have changed their mailing addresses during the application process are more likely to send their documents with the new secure shipping mode.
