What is the purpose of UAC Immigration Form?
This test is for all UAC users that have the Internet Explorer 10 or lower version installed on their machine, and to validate their UAC is working. This test is not intended for system admins, but rather users that want to check their UAC settings, or anyone else.
Why is this test required?
As an administrator, you have control over your users and their UAC settings. These rules are not easily found; you must be proactive. In order to maintain your Windows 10 computer in a secure mode with proper security settings, you must check the results of this test.
What should I do?
If that is you, click the “Run Now” button. Otherwise, click “Next”.
After logging in, be sure to select a test profile that can be run, and click “Next” and “Finish” to get the results.
You should see the following results if “Auto Logon is disabled” is listed:
Note “Automatically logon (recommended)” is also selected for you. If this is the case, you can select “Do not check this” to ensure you are testing for UAC, rather than for logon speed.
If you see an “Advanced security settings did not match the user preferences” message, then you should select “Use the best settings” to improve your desktop experience and secure it.
If you get “The system cannot find the file specified”. Please update your system. The file can be found here: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Windows PowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe.
If you get “The file or directory is not a read only file or directory”. Please see our article below for more information about setting this file.
If you see “You might be running Windows Setup as admin” and that is what you want, select “Start-up” when prompted, then “Change Startup type”, and select “Run as administrator”.
Note: Once you do this, you will not be able to remove this “Run As Administrator” checkbox, as it can only be removed by reinstalling Windows. This also means that when you uninstall Windows, you will need to choose run as administrator the first time. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please contact us.
Click “Finish” to finish the test.
That's all there is to it.
Who should complete UAC Immigration Form?
Anyone on a student, employer, or employee visa, including a visitor who is here on an approved visa.
There is now a UAC immigration form (LIES) that is available for individuals to fill out on their own at home.
A parent with an approved visa may have to re-start the process by providing certain forms to USCIS. More information on the ACT and Form I-130 is available here.
How to complete UAC immigration form?
Complete the UAC immigration form (LIES) at home on a computer, tablet or mobile device. Use ACT to fill out everything. If you have paper-based software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe InDesign, Word, etc., you could print it out as a letter to submit to USCIS. Please ensure you have the computer set to print at 400 dpi and save it as an PDF.

If you have questions, call for assistance.
The USCIS Form 9166 for UAC requires that the information be entered on a computer screen in a Microsoft Word document. It may be best to use a screen reader for instructions on the USCIS Form 9166. If you are unable, or unable to understand the instructions, you may call, and we might be able to find a translator to speak to you.
Can USCIS accept my completed UAC for an approval decision?
Yes — the USCIS will contact you for additional information (such as supporting documents).
When do I need to complete UAC Immigration Form?
You must complete all necessary paperwork and have it notarized in order to remain in the United States. It is also recommended that you submit all your documentation as soon as possible because delays may mean that you may not meet the requirements for a visa during the interview process.
How are the UAC Immigration Forms structured?
Each form is formatted in a way that is easy for you to understand. This section on the right explains how each section of the form may be used. The following links will walk you through these sections. If you have additional questions about UAC immigration forms contact your UAC office.
The following are general descriptions of each section of the UAC immigration form.
Can I create my own UAC Immigration Form?
See “Creating Your Own UAC Immigration Form” in the Tech Support Section for additional information.
How can I change a UAC in-place?
See “Updating Your UAC in Place” in the User Access and Help Section.
How do I make sure my UAC is working according to the instructions?
If the UAC does not turn off in the following situations, you may need to reset your UAC. See the Technical Guide “Reset UAC to Work on Specific Applications” for instructions on resetting your UAC.
When a Windows-based application (for example, a Windows command-line shell or Windows Explorer) does not start after restarting during a restart sequence, you can verify this by typing in “config” into the command prompt. If your UAC does not stop on its own, you might need this command to reset your UAC : config | find “services.MSC. UacPreAuthenticated”
Windows Service applications (as a service)
You can verify the Service Principal Name of a Windows Service by using the “run as Administrator” option during installation. In the service.properties file you can find the ServicePrincipalName line.
Windows 8.1-based applications
You can create a UAC entry when you run the following commands in an elevated command prompt:
cmd.exe /c start “%appdata%” “c:\myapp.exe UAC.bat”
cmd.exe /c start “%appdata%” “c:\myapp.exe UAC U8.bat”
If the service does not start and the Service Principal Name is not listed in cmd.exe /c, you need to check that the service.properties contains the following line:
Note If your Windows Service is not running by the way the service.properties is set, check that the command execution policy is set to “Deny”.
What happens if my UAC does not shut down properly when Windows reboot?
If you experience problems in rebooting, restarting, or entering Safe Mode and you can do so reliably on each restart from your own Windows 7 device, this problem is caused by an incorrect UAC configuration.
What should I do with UAC Immigration Form when it’s complete?
There is no need to fill out the application on your desktop or laptop computer.
How do I get my UAC Immigration Form?
You need to fill out a UAC form to complete your US immigration paperwork. You can either print a copy of the UAC form or find a printed copy online. If the form has not already been created and filled out, it can be done online via the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website.
If you get the “Sorry, an error was detected while processing Your Form” email as your first email, you can print a copy of the UAC form for future reference. If you get the “Sorry, a program error occurred while processing Your Form” email at the beginning of your job application process, it means that your Form may have failed inspection.

How do I get my US Citizenship and Green Card Certificate?
As with getting your US immigration form, you need to fill out a US citizenship and naturalization (USG) form to complete your US immigration paperwork. You can either print a copy of the USG form or find a printed copy online. If your US citizenship and USG form has not already been created and filled out, it can be done online via the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website.
NOTE: There is a possibility that the US Citizenship and Green Card (US CIV) form may be missing a question, so if you find this to your benefit, ask your local Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office to provide you with a copy of the US CIV form.
Can my spouse apply for my US citizenship?
Yes! If one of you has US citizenship, you can apply for it together. To do this and get your US immigration form filled out, get your US citizenship and USG forms (also named as American Citizen and Legal Permanent Resident (aGreencard.com) forms on USG.gov/forms for each one). Send all forms to the American Citizen Services (ACS) P.O. Box 61925, Atlanta, GA 30334.
Does my U.S. Citizenship and green card document expire after being issued for less than two years?
Your American Citizen and Legal Permanent Residence (card) can last up to two years from the publication date (date a green card is issued).
What documents do I need to attach to my UAC Immigration Form?
UAC (United States Citizen) Immigration Forms include the following documents that the applicant must present if admitted and are usually referred to as “Document #1” or “Document #2”.
The original documents showing United States Citizenship
The original document from the passport applicant's most recent passport,
The original of the document (or the most recent copy) or the document that is certified by the visa section of the Department of Homeland Security that the applicant is a U.S. citizen.

In addition to these immigration forms and documents that must be submitted to the UAC if admitted, an I-797 form must also be submitted to confirm the applicant's immigration application status.
If I am an alien in a foreign country
To make an immigration application in Canada, you must provide evidence that either your residence is in Canada or that you have a right as a Canadian resident to reside in Canada.
Where you are domiciled in Canada is an important consideration in determining whether you are an “alien in a foreign country”, and may be important for deciding whether you are entitled to claim certain other types of exemptions based on other criteria (for example, under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, or under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRA).
A foreign national under the age of 30
The definition of “self-sufficient” under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRA). Under IRA, a foreign national under the age of 30 is not subject to any Canadian immigration conditions based on residence. He or she does not need an immigrant visa (a visa permitting entry into Canada), and, if granted a study permit, he or she does not require the approval of a sponsorship application or other similar application process for a residence permit.
What are the different types of UAC Immigration Form?
Form 2553-A and Form 2553-B, “Unaccompanied Alien Child” applicants, will ask the following questions:

Which parent(s) do you want to have the child with?
What parent(s) do you want to have the child with?
Do you want to get this child (the UAC applicant) into the United States without the child's legal guardian from this country?
Do you want to get this child (the UAC applicant) to leave the United States with the child's legal guardian or legal parent from this country?
Am I a close relative?
The USCIS will ask if it is an immediate relative or a relative at most. A close relative is one that is:
1) Spouse or Child, 2) Parent, 3) Child, 4) Uncle/Uncle's child, 5) Grandparents, 6) Brother/Sister, 7) Brother/Sister-in-Law, 8) Friend, 9) Brother's/Sister's son, 10) Sister's/Brother's son, 11) Aunt/Uncle's son, 12) Aunt's/Uncle's daughter, 13) Grandmother, 14) Brother's/Sister's husband, 15) Grandfather, 16) Brother's/Sister's daughter, 17) Grandfather's sister, 18) Brother's/Sister's daughter, 19) Uncle's/Uncle's daughter, 20) Cousin, 21) Nephew/Niece, 22) Niece, 27.)

What does UAC apply to?
The UAC program applies to all new non-U.S. citizen immigrants, regardless of how long they have been in the United States. The purpose of the UAC policy is to ensure that U.S. residents who enter the United States on a temporary basis or for business will have a fair chance to achieve permanent residence status in the United States by entering under the “special rules” for aliens for which U.S. immigration law provides. Under U.S. laws, a lawful permanent resident is a citizen of the United States, whether with or without lawful presence. U.S. laws specify that anyone entering the country on a temporary visa or for business can be subject to U.S. immigration law, which includes the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, and U.S. laws relating to employment.
What are the procedures involved in applying for a UAC program visa?
In order to apply for a UAC program visa on Form I-485, a U.S. citizen, (not including a person in the visa waiver program) must submit a USCIS Form I-485 and the required documents. The following items MUST be included in the document package for Form I-485:
a completed Form I-485;
copies of the I-94/I-797 Record of Arrival,
transportation to the U.S. to enter the UAC program area, and the U.S. return ticket (or other document authorizing the entry to the United States); AND, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) letter of approval.
