USBP Travel Documents, Part 17

I-586

The Border Crosser Card, from I-586, is issued to Mexican nationals who reside in Mexico and frequently cross into the U.S. for visits, shopping, or to conduct commerce. The status granted the bearer is B-1/B-2, a visitor for business or pleasure. The bearer of this card is not entitled to work in the US, they are restricted to stays of no more than 72 hours, and may they only travel within 25 miles of the border. This card is similar in design to the I-551 Resident Alien Card, except in color.
