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

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.
