USCIS Increases Work Authorization for Asylum Seekers

Effective October 5, 2016, USCIS has increased the validity period for initial or renewal Employment Authorization Documents for asylum applicants from one year to two years. Applicants with pending asylum claims file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, under category (c)(8). This change applies to all (c)(8)-based applications that are pending as of October 5, 2016 and all such applications filed on or after October 5, 2016.

Individuals interested in applying for asylum must do so within a specific timeframe. To see if you are eligible, please contact me, Rancho Cucamonga immigration attorney Ted Huang, I serve communities in the Inland Empire.
