Form I-385, is an Alien Booking Record. Noncitizens apprehended and then released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sometimes have a copy of Form I-385, Alien Booking Record. This is a record related to their apprehension and is not an identity document.
