USCIS 2D Barcode Requirements

The following 2D barcode requirements are available for third-party vendors to use their own commercial 2D barcode generators to more accurately reproduce the barcode, so that barcoded applications can be efficiently processed at our Lockbox facility without requiring manual efforts or customer delays in order to reconcile misalignments. For those entities that reproduce our forms, if the barcode is not developed to match the specifications, it introduces processing inefficiencies, the potential for inaccurate data, delays, and a loss of confidence from your customers.
