Minnesota USCIS & Immigration Court Information

Immigration Court, Executive Office for Immigration Review — EOIR

EOIR 1-800 Number

If you need to know the date of your next immigration hearing, or whether you've been ordered removed (deported) by an immigration judge in the past, the court maintains a helpful 1-800 number. You will need to give your Alien Registration number – which can be found on hearing notices and documents (including employment authorization cards and permanent resident cards) issued by US immigration authorities. The nine digit number is usually preceded by "A#" or "USCIS #." Call 1-800-898-7180 (toll-free) to obtain case status information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Preparing for Your Immigration Court Hearing

Plan to arrive well in advance of your scheduled hearing, ideally between 30 to 60 minutes. Generally, to gain access to the court building, you will need to provide a valid photo-ID. Talk to your lawyer before if you do not have an ID. Be sure to bring your Immigration Court hearing notice.

You will need to pass through security — including a metal detector and x-ray machine. It goes without saying, but do not bring any knifes, guns or weapons to your appointment. Prohibited items include metal nail files, scissors, and small pocket knifes. When in doubt, leave it at home.
