Symbols and Coding used by DHS, DOS and other agencies on immigration documents

Symbols and Coding used by DHSThe following is a table of the most common codes used on the Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card (Green Card). These codes make it easier for immigration officials to determine whether the alien presenting the document is eligible for a given public benefit. The codes do not determine state funding for federal benefits. In family-based cases where the LPR requires a sponsor, this code is only part of the process for determining whether the LPR in question is eligible for a public benefit.

Each code represents the lawful permanent resident's (LPR's) or conditional permanent resident's (CR's) class of admission. The letter or letters in the code generally indicate a broader category and the number indicates the LPRs order and relationship in the class.

To see an example, please look at this sample Green Card courtesy of USCIS' website:

You can find the code for this Green Card holder listed under “Category” on the center-right partition of the card. This sample card holder has the code “RE8.” When you consult the below chart, you will see that the RE6 category is for LPRs who entered the United States on or after April 1, 1980, and adjusted from refugee status, and that the RE8 category is for the child of a person classified as RE6.

It is important to remember that some classes have two-letter codes whereas other classes have one-letter codes. For example, both the asylee class (AS) and the class for natives of certain adversely affected foreign states [diversity transition] (AA) begin with the letter “A,” but the different second letter indicates that these are different classes entirely.
