Re-entry Permit Receipt Status Check

This page is for those who have already applied for a re-entry permit at USCIS and are currently waiting to receive it at the Embassy in Tokyo. If you designated to receive your re-entry permit and wish to check if it has been received by the Consulates in Sapporo, Osaka, Fukuoka, or Naha please use this online inquiry form.

If you have not yet applied for a reentry permit, you may file Form I-131, Application for Travel Document at USCIS. You should file this application well in advance of your planned trip. Filing instructions and forms are available on the Web site at www.uscis.gov.

How can I check my status?

  1. Check your “Application/Petition/Request Number”. If you applied for a reentry permit and completed biometrics at a designated Application Support Center (ASC), you will receive the I-797C Notice of Action with a biometrics processing stamp. You will find the number at the top-right of the notice. You can check status of I-131 application on the USCIS website.
  2. Find your “Application/Petition/Request Number” in the list below. If you find your number on the list, that means the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo has received your re-entry permit. Please schedule an appointment and come to the Embassy to pick up your Re-entry Permit.

Bring the following items:

    • Appointment letter
    • Your I-797C, Notice of Action (photocopies acceptable)
    • Your passport
    • Green Card, if applicable

Note:  If your family will be coming to pick up the Re-entry Permit on your behalf, they will need to bring a letter of permission from you and their valid photo ID, in addition to the above items.
