Greta Garbo’s Immigration Identification Card

Garbo’s one-of-a-kind United States Department of Labor immigrant identification card, signed at the conclusion in pencil, 5 x 3, September 20, 1938. The card is filled out in type with her personal information, listing her surname as “Garbo,” given name as “Greta Lovisa,” country of birth, “Sweden,” date of birth, “Sept. 18, 1905,” nationality, “Swedish,” and color of eyes, “Blue.” The lower portion is filled out in red ink by the immigrant inspector, noting that she arrived at the port of New York aboard the steamship Kungsholm on October 7, 1938, with a status of admission as “N. Q. 4-B Immigrant.” A gorgeous 1.5 x 2 passport-style photo of Garbo is stapled to the right side, with an embossed seal and ‘Consular Service’ stamp along the bottom. The reverse was filled out in type at the American Consulate General in Stockholm, Sweden, on September 20, 1938, noting her immigration visa status as “8 Swedish – Section 4 (b),” and that a previously issued card had been canceled. In fine condition. From the estate of Greta Garbo.
