USCIS Amman takes fingerprints for persons who are residents of Jordan and who are:

  • Active-duty members of the military or their spouses who are applicants for naturalization;
  • Spouses of U.S. government employees serving overseas and other applicants for expedited naturalization residing overseas;
  • Prospective adoptive parents who are filing from overseas; or
  • Applicants for Refugee Travel Documents.

Limited fingerprinting services may also be available to overseas applicants filing for U.S. immigration benefits who present an appropriate letter from a domestic USCIS office stating that fingerprints are required, or in compelling circumstances.  Please contact our office for additional information.

The USCIS Field Office in Amman has never designated, recommended, or certified any law office, immigration representative, or translator/ interpreter to provide services in connection with any immigration procedure in Jordan or elsewhere.  USCIS does not require notarized translation; we only require that the translator certify in writing his or her competence to translate documents from Arabic to English or vice versa.  USCIS does not require that an individual applying for immigration benefits be represented by a lawyer or anyone else.  If, however, an individual wishes an attorney to represent him or her, the attorney must provide this office with a fully completed form G-28 (Notice of Entry of Appearance).  If an individual wishes someone else (not a lawyer) to obtain information about a case on his or her behalf, the individual must submit a signed statement permitting another person to receive information.
