Default do I have to Inform USCIS about passport renewal ?

IVians
I applied for I-485 during in July 07 and have I-140 approved.
I renewed my passport last week, new passport number is different.

Should I inform USCIS about this change?? is there any process/form for this?

Please share experiences, I'm sure many of us must have experienced this.

You dont need to inform USCIS about new passport, but make sure you carry your old as well as new passport, dont discard the old passport as yet.

Thanks Sanjay02.

Another follow-up question.. I'm planning to file for EAD, which passport number should I use in this form ?
If I use new one(which is valid), isn't it in contra with AOS application?

Has anyone faced this situation ?

I had the same scenario and got my EAD renewed using the new passport number without any issues. What USCIS is mainly concerned about is your A# that you fill up in your EAD form.

Thx

At the time of filing anything, give what is current.

USCIS knows this issue and thats the reason, they don't keep passport as a parameter in decision making, except a rule that it should be valid for n months while you file an application.

Plus, when you get a renewed passport, in the last page, your old passport number and file number are written in the "comments/notes" column to help officers to refer the old links.

This might be a simple stupid question,

Can you please update, if you used a standard 2*2 passport taken here in the applicaiton form or got one 3.5 cm * 3.5 cm as put in the passport form. If yes, where did you took one. The standard size Passport Photo appears to be a little bigger than the one specified in the Passport application.

I recently renewed our passports. I removed the I-94 (Which were stapled) to the passports and kept those with me, just to make sure it doesn't get lost. There was no question asked from Indian embassy regarding I-94, which is not the requirement, on the website.
