How do I fill out Form I-131A for carrier documentation?



Check your eligibility first:

  • If your green card or re-entry permit was stolen, lost, mutilated or destroyed during travelling outside the USA, you’ll most probably need to file Form I-131A.
  • If you are travelling abroad and your green card has expired, you probably don’t have to fill out Form I-131A. If you possess an expired green card, many transportation carriers will let you board, so it is better to contact a carrier first.
  • If you are a permanent resident who was not present in the USA for one year or more, Form I-131A will not be helpful anyway. If it seems like your green card was abandoned, it is better to search for help from an immigration attorney.
  • If your green card or re-entry permit was stolen, lost, mutilated or destroyed inside the USA, you have to file Form I-90 (Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card), as Form I-131A can be applied only by permanent residents outside the USA.

There is a voluminous set of instructions for filling out Form I-131A available on U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official website. You can download and follow them, keeping in mind that any mistakes and omissions may cause a delay or even rejection of your admission. Another way is to charge someone experienced and trustworthy with this task. Step-by-step guidance will save your time, guarantee accuracy and acceptance of your application at the first try. After completing Application for Travel Document (Carrier Documentation), you should pay the USCIS filing fee and then submit it to the closest U.S. Consulate or Embassy.

I wanted to get political asylum in the United States, but I realized that it was not so easy. I was ready for the fact that I would have to collect a whole bunch of documents and answer many questions, but this did not stop me. The only obstacle for me was a complete lack of understanding where to start. I accidentally found Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet. All the information you need is there. I easily found and downloaded the form I needed, and also learned the entire list of required documents.

A very useful site for those who want to leave for America and do not know what documents need to be collected and how to arrange everything correctly. I had to face such a problem and I was able to solve it thanks to the site Usa-immigrations.com. All the information gathered here is not only useful, but also very necessary. In addition, the site staff constantly update it, so it is absolutely reliable.

It is not an easy task to issue documents to travel to the USA. Even if you know their entire list, that's not all. To obtain a visa, you must fill out the forms and if even a minor mistake is made, they will be returned to you. At Usa-immigrations.com there is more than a list of documents and forms that can be easily downloaded. Each form is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to fill it out correctly. It is very convenient. I liked the site very much, it is simple and easy to use.

I have been living in America with my family for a long time and am a citizen of this country. I decided to lure my mother to her. I began to find out what documents are needed for this. One friend advised the site Usa-immigrations.com, said that it had all the necessary information. Indeed, here I found out what documents are required. I needed to complete a Form I-130. I also found it on this site and downloaded it. Thanks to the instructions for filling it out, I was able to quickly complete everything and send the documents for consideration.
