What is "Status at Last Entry" on Form I-765?


Your Status at Last Entry is the visa category you held when you last entered the U.S. and were admitted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The visa category describes the basis that you were admitted into the United States. You can look at your visa (probably inside your passport) to find the appropriate category.
