Full Answer

Foreign passports need to have a temporary I-551 stamp from the USCIS to be considered valid. These can be obtained from any USCIS office while waiting for a green card to be mailed. Possible alternate options for those holding foreign passports include a permanent resident card or alien registration receipt card. Residents of Canada and Mexico can simply use their driver's licenses from their home country as valid identification.
