USCIS: Updated Forms I-829; I-601; I-690; I-698

Dear Stakeholder,

We have added a new attestation section to the following forms that were recently updated:

· Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions
· Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility
· Form I-690, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility Under Sections 245A or 210 of the Immigration and Nationality Act
· Form I-698, Application to Adjust Status from Temporary to Permanent Resident (Under Section 245A of the INA)

All customers who file these forms, and those who must provide biometrics, will see new language in the forms and in their biometric appointment notices. This language appears in the section of the forms entitled, “Applicant’s/Petitioner’s Statement, Contact Information, Acknowledgement of Appointment at USCIS Application Support Center, Certification, and Signature.” Applicants will also see similar language when they come to their biometric appointments.

We are incorporating this language in the biometric appointment notices to remind applicants that they certified under penalty of perjury at the time of filing that the content of their form was complete, true, and correct. By appearing at an ASC, applicants are re-affirming that the content of their form was complete, true, and correct at the time of filing.

The procedure and process to capture biometrics will not change. We will continue to use biometric machines to capture digital fingerprints, a digital photograph, and a digital image of the applicant’s signature.
