Instructions for Record of Abandonment of  
Lawful Permanent Resident Status  
Form I-407  
OMB No. 1615-0130  
Expires 07/31/2023  
Department of Homeland Security  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services  
What Is the Purpose of Form I-407?  
Form I-407, Record of Abandonment of Lawful Permanent Resident Status, is designed to provide a simple procedure  
to record an individual’s abandonment of status as a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States. Use of Form  
I-407 also ensures that an individual abandoning his or her LPR status is informed of the right to a hearing before an  
immigration judge and that the individual has knowingly, willingly, and affirmatively waived that right.  
Who May File Form I-407?  
Form I-407 is used by lawful permanent residents who are outside the United States or at a Port of Entry who want to  
abandon their LPR status. Form I-407 may also be used by individuals who were admitted into the United States as  
non-immigrants or paroled into the United States after abandoning a prior LPR status, and who now want to record that  
prior abandonment of LPR status. Generally, if a parent abandons LPR status, any minor children in that parent’s custody  
will also have abandoned their LPR status. If a parent, custodial parent, or legal guardian chooses to file a separate Form  
I-407 on behalf of a minor child, the parent, custodial parent, or legal guardian must show that he or she has custody of the  
minor child.  
Form I-407 is also used by U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials and U.S. Department of State (DOS)  
consular officers to record the facts relating to individuals who abandon LPR status during an in-person interview or by  
General Instructions  
How to Fill Out Form I-407  
1. Type or print legibly in black ink.  
2. Answer all questions fully and accurately. If a question does not apply to you (for example, if you have never been  
married and the question asks, “Provide the name of your current spouse”), type or print “N/A” unless otherwise  
directed. If your answer to a question which requires a numeric response is zero or none (for example, “How many  
children do you have” or “How many times have you departed the United States”), type or print “None” unless  
otherwise directed.  
3. Provide your Alien Registration Number (A-Number) on the top right corner of each page. Your A-Number is located  
on your Permanent Resident Card (formerly known as the Alien Registration Card). The A-Number on your card  
consists of a seven to nine digit number, depending on when your record was created. If the A-Number on your card  
has fewer than nine digits, place enough zeros before the first number to make a total of nine digits on Form I-407.  
For example, type or print number A1234567 as A001234567 or type or print number A12345678 as A012345678.  
4. Your form must be properly completed, signed, and submitted. You must include all pages when you submit Form
