Instructions for Notice of Appeal of Decision Under  
Section 210 or 245A of the Immigration and Nationality Act  
Department of Homeland Security  
Form I-694  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services  
What Is the Purpose of Form I-694?  
This form is used to notify U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that you are appealing the decision to the  
Director of USCIS of your denied permanent residence, temporary residence, or a waiver of grounds of inadmissibility  
under the amnesty program provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA).  
General Instructions  
USCIS provides forms free of charge through the USCIS website. In order to view, print, or fill out our forms, you should  
use the latest version of Adobe Reader, which you can download for free at http://get.adobe.com/reader/. If you do not  
have Internet access, you may call the USCIS National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283 and ask that we mail  
a form to you. For TTY (deaf or hard of hearing) call: 1-800-767-1833.  
Signature. Each form must be properly signed and filed. For all signatures on this form, USCIS will not accept a  
stamped or typewritten name in place of a signature. If you are under 14 years of age, your parent or legal guardian may  
sign the appeal on your behalf. A legal guardian may also sign for a mentally incompetent person.  
Filing Fee. Each form must be accompanied by the appropriate filing fee. (See the What Is the Filing Fee section of  
these Instructions.)  
Evidence. At the time of filing, you must submit all evidence and supporting documentation listed in these Instructions.  
Copies. You may submit legible photocopies of documents requested, unless the Instructions specifically state that you  
must submit an original document. USCIS may request an original document at the time of filing or at any time during  
processing of an application, petition, or request. If you submit original documents when not required, the documents  
may remain a part of the record, and USCIS will not automatically return them to you.  
Translations. If you submit a document with information in a foreign language, you must also submit a full English  
translation. The translator must sign a certification that the English language translation is complete and accurate, and that  
he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language into English. The certification should also include the date,  
the translator’s signature and printed name, and may contain the translator’s contact information.  
How To Fill Out Form I-694  
1. Type or print legibly in black ink.  
2. If you need extra space to complete any item within this form, use the space provided in Part 7. Additional  
Information or attach a separate sheet of paper; type or print your name and Alien Registration Number (A-Number)  
(if any) at the top of each sheet; indicate the Page Number, Part Number, and Item Number to which your answer  
refers; and sign and date each sheet.  
3. 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.

USCIS online filing system (previously called USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS)), provide the  
USCIS Online Account Number you were issued by the system. You can find your USCIS Online Account Number  
by logging in to your account and going to the profile page. If you previously filed certain applications, petitions,  
or requests on a paper form via a USCIS Lockbox facility, you may have received a USCIS Online Account Access  
Notice issuing you a USCIS Online Account Number. If you received such a notice, your USCIS Online Account  
Number can be found at the top of the notice. If you were issued a USCIS Online Account Number, enter it in the  
space provided. The USCIS Online Account Number is not the same as an A-Number.  
5. Part 4. Appellant’s Statement, Contact Information, Certification, and Signature. Select the appropriate box  
to indicate whether you read this form yourself or whether you had an interpreter assist you. If someone assisted  
you in completing the form, select the box indicating that you used a preparer. Further, you must sign and date your  
form and provide your daytime telephone number, mobile telephone number (if any), and email address (if any).  
Every form MUST contain the signature of the appellant (or parent or legal guardian, if applicable). A stamped or  
typewritten name in place of a signature is not acceptable.  
6. Part 5. Interpreter’s Contact Information, Certification, and Signature. If you used anyone as an interpreter to  
read the instructions and questions on this form to you in a language in which you are fluent, the interpreter must fill  
out this section, provide his or her name, the name and address of his or her business or organization (if any), his or  
her daytime telephone number, and his or her email address (if any). The interpreter must sign and date the form.  
7. Part 6. Contact Information, Declaration, and Signature of the Person Preparing this Form, if Other Than  
the Appellant. This section must contain the signature of the person who completed your form, if other than you,  
the appellant. If the same individual acted as your interpreter and your preparer, that person should complete both  
Part 5. and Part 6. If the person who completed this form is associated with a business or organization, that person  
should complete the business or organization name and address information. Anyone who helped you complete this  
form MUST sign and date the form. A stamped or typewritten name in place of a signature is not acceptable. If the  
person who helped you prepare your form is an attorney or accredited representative whose representation extends  
beyond preparation of this form, he or she may be obliged to also submit a completed Form G-28, Notice of Entry of  
Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative, along with your form.  
8. Part 7. Additional Information. If you need extra space to provide any additional information within this form,  
use the space provided in Part 7. Additional Information. If you need more space than what is provided in Part 7.,  
you may make copies of Part 7. to complete and file with your form, or attach a separate sheet of paper. Include your  
name and A-Number (if any) at the top of each sheet; indicate the Page Number, Part Number, and Item Number  
to which your answer refers; and sign and date each sheet.  
We recommend that you print or save a copy of your completed form to review in the  
future and for your records.  
You may submit a brief in support of your Form I-694, although it is not required. You may submit a brief with your  
Form I-694 or separately after your form is received at the USCIS Service Center. If you submit your brief separately,  
USCIS must receive it within 30 calendar days from the receipt date of your Form I-694.

Oral Arguments  
You may request to appear before the USCIS Director or an officer designated by the Director to present an oral argument.  
To request an oral argument, submit a letter with your Form I-694 that explains the reasons an oral argument is desired in  
support of or in place of a brief. USCIS will deny any request for an oral argument where the appeal is deemed frivolous,  
where oral argument will serve no useful purpose, or where written material or representations will appropriately serve  
your interests. If a request for an oral argument is granted, you must appear in person at a USCIS office. The officer to  
whom the appeal is taken will designate in writing the time, date, and place of the oral argument. USCIS will limit an oral  
argument in any case to 15 minutes, unless justification and arrangements for additional time are made in advance.  
What Is the Filing Fee?  
The filing fee for Form I-694 is $890.  
NOTE: The filing fee is not refundable, regardless of any action USCIS takes on this notice. DO NOT MAIL CASH.  
You must submit all fees in the exact amount.  
Use the following guidelines when you prepare your check or money order for the Form I-694 filing fee:  
1. The check or money order must be drawn on a bank or other financial institution located in the United States and must  
be payable in U.S. currency; and  
2. Make the check or money order payable to U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  
NOTE: Spell out U.S. Department of Homeland Security; do not use the initials “USDHS” or “DHS.”  
Notice to Those Making Payment by Check. If you send us a check, USCIS will convert it into an electronic funds  
transfer (EFT). This means we will copy your check and use the account information on it to electronically debit your  
account for the amount of the check. The debit from your account will usually take 24 hours and your bank will show it  
on your regular account statement.  
You will not receive your original check back. We will destroy your original check, but will keep a copy of it. If USCIS  
cannot process the EFT for technical reasons, you authorize us to process the copy in place of your original check. If your  
check is returned as unpayable, USCIS will re-submit the payment to the financial institution one time. If the check is  
returned as unpayable a second time, we will reject your notice and charge you a returned check fee.  
How to Check if the Fees Are Correct  
Form I-694’s filing fee is current as of the edition date in the lower left corner of this page. However, because USCIS fees  
change periodically, you can verify that the fees are correct by following one of the steps below.  
1. Visit the website at www.uscis.gov, select “FORMS,” and check the appropriate fee; or  
2. Call the USCIS National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283 and ask for fee information. For TTY (deaf or  
hard of hearing) call: 1-800-767-1833.  
Fee Waiver  
You may be eligible for a fee waiver under 8 CFR 103.7(c). If you believe you are eligible for a fee waiver, complete  
Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, and submit it and any required evidence of your inability to pay the filing fee with  
this notice. You can review the fee waiver guidance at www.uscis.gov/feewaiver

Where To File?  
You must file Form I-694 with the USCIS Office that adjudicated your case, as provided on the Notice of Denial.  
USCIS must receive your appeal within 30 calendar days of the date noted on the Notice of Denial. The 30-day period for  
submitting an appeal begins 3 days after the Notice of Denial is mailed. USCIS will not grant any extensions. Do not file  
your appeal at the USCIS Administration Appeals Office (AAO).  
Address Change  
An appellant who is not a U.S. citizen must notify USCIS of his or her new address within 10 days of moving from  
his or her previous residence. For information on filing a change of address go to the USCIS website at  
www.uscis.gov/addresschange or contact the USCIS the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283.  
For TTY (deaf or hard of hearing) call: 1-800-767-1833.  
NOTE: Do not submit a change of address request to the USCIS Lockbox facilities because the Lockbox does not  
process change of address requests.  
Processing Information  
USCIS will reject any Form I-694 that is not signed or accompanied by the correct fee will be rejected with a notice  
that Form I-694 is deficient. You may correct the deficiency and resubmit Form I-694. An application or petition is not  
considered properly filed until accepted by USCIS with the correct fee.  
Initial processing. Once USCIS accepts your appeal we will check it for completeness. If you do not completely fill out  
this form, you will not establish a basis for your eligibility and USCIS may reject or deny your form.  
Requests for More Information. We may request that you provide more information or evidence to support your form.  
We may also request that you provide the originals of any copies you submit. USCIS will return any requested originals  
when they are no longer needed.  
Requests for Interview. We may request that you appear at a USCIS office for an interview based on your form. At  
the time of any interview or other appearance at a USCIS office, we may require that you provide your fingerprints,  
photograph, and/or signature to verify your identity and/or update background and security checks.  
Decision. The decision on Form I-694 involves a determination of whether you have established eligibility for the  
immigration benefit you are seeking. USCIS will notify you of the decision in writing.
