Introduction of the Revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form
Revisions include new user-friendly instructions for completing Form I-9
WASHINGTON - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today published a revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 for use. All employers are required to complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired in the United States.
On February 28, 2013, USCIS will disable the alternative legacy online filing channel for Form I-539 and offer customers the option to:
- File online with USCIS ELIS, or
- File a paper application by mail.
Following the launch of our paperless electronic immigration system, USCIS ELIS, we offered customers three ways to file the Form I-539. Since then, USCIS has improved USCIS ELIS and consolidated its filing methods.
Easy-to-Use Formats: We are publishing many of our forms in a 2-column, Adobe fillable format. When completed electronically, this format restricts incorrect entries and provides informational pop-up boxes to assist customers.
User-Friendly Look and Feel: We have improved several of our naturalization forms to include clear and comprehensive instructions in plain language.
USCIS extends application Form I-821D Revision for 30 days.

DHS, USCIS invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment upon this proposed revision of a currently approved collection of information. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the information collection notice is published in the Federal Register to obtain comments regarding the nature of the information collection, the categories of respondents, and the estimated burden (i.e. the time, effort, and resources used by the respondents to respond).
Reminder: Applicants may begin filing Form I-601A, Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, on March 4, 2013.
