Сlass of Admission on Form I-130 is a code that refers to the condition or law that granted you entry to the US in the capacity of a permanent resident or a conditional permanent resident. It stands for the visa category that was used to grant you admission to the United States.

Class of Admission is usually 3 digits consisting of letters and numbers (e.g., CR6). The codes differ. For example, the code usually starts with “N” for a new arrival, with “A” for an individual adjusting status, and with “C” for a conditional resident. For example, spouse of a US citizen may have “CR1” code on his/her immigrant visa when entering the US. Meanwhile, please note that the Class of Admission code changes as soon as a conditional resident removes conditions on his/her residence.

You can find your Class of Admission code in the following documents:

  • your green card (it is indicated on the backside of older green cards, and on the front side of newer green cards, under the word “Category”);
  • your immigrant visa, under the word “IV Category” (if you initially entered the US with an immigrant visa);
  • the I-485 approval notice (if you adjusted status to permanent resident while already in the US).

You will have to indicate the Сlass of Admission in Item 40.a, Part 2. Information About You, of Form I-130.
