Immigration Issues/UCI


I read a reply from you that UCI ia a number on IMM 1000. Is it hand-written or printed? On my IMM 1000 (I migrated in 2000) there is no printed UCI; however, there is a hand-written number. Is this the UCI?
Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hello Rashid,

Thank you for your question.  The UCI means Unique Client Identification.  It is an 8 digit number.  It may be written in the Comments section or it could be the handwritten number you describe.  It typically appears as xxxx-xxxx.
