U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) appear a Acting Final Aphorism (TFR) that increases the automated addendum aeon for Appliance Allotment Documents (EADs) accessible to assertive EAD face-lifting applicants. The TFR, which takes aftereffect anon on May 4, 2022, applies to EAD face-lifting applications filed on or afore October 26, 2023, including those applications which were filed above-mentioned to May 4. The aphorism is bound to those EAD categories that were ahead adequate for an automated 180-day extension. Beneath the acting rule, USCIS has added the automated 180-day addendum by up to 360 days, for a absolute of up to 540 days.
USCIS allows adopted nationals in a cardinal of altered statuses to administer for EADs. Historically, processing times for an EAD appliance were almost three months. Over the accomplished several years, USCIS processing has slowed dramatically, and it generally takes over one year for USCIS to affair an EAD card. This adjournment has resulted in the acting accident of assignment allotment for a ample cardinal of these face workers. DHS implemented a adjustment in January 2017 to accommodate an automatic, 180-day addendum of EADs for assertive categories of EAD holders, which takes aftereffect back the alone files a appropriate appeal for an EAD extension. However, this 180-day addendum has not been adequate due to continued delayed USCIS processing times for EAD addendum applications.
Through this TFR, USCIS seeks to abstain these gaps in appliance for noncitizens with awaiting EAD face-lifting applications, and to balance the chain of operations for U.S. employers.
In arising this TFR, USCIS invoked the Administrative Procedure Act’s (“APA”) “good cause” barring to abandon the accepted accessible notice-and-comment aeon appropriate for rulemaking beneath the APA. The adequate account barring “excuses apprehension and animadversion in emergency situations, or area adjournment could aftereffect in austere harm.”

Applicants who book a Form I-765 face-lifting appliance afterwards this filing timeframe and who are adequate for an automated addendum of their appliance allotment will accept the ahead provided 180-day automated addendum period.
Renewal applicants who already are experiencing a gap in appliance authorization.

However, although the aphorism authorizes an added aeon of appliance authorization, it does not cure any aeon of crooked appliance that may accept accrued above-mentioned to arising of the rule.
USCIS has adumbrated that it affairs to affair Form I-797C Notices of Action with an account of the up to 540-day automated addendum aeon for EAD face-lifting applications filed on or afterwards May 4, 2022. USCIS does not plan to affair adapted Form I-797C notices to adequate applicants who filed their Form I-765 face-lifting appliance afore May 4, 2022. However, individuals who appearance Form I-797C notices that accredit to a 180-day extension, forth with their condoning EADs, will still accept the automated 540-day addendum beneath this rule.
USCIS has additionally adumbrated that it will update the web page that is referenced in the accepted Form I-797C apprehension to reflect the change in the automated addendum period. USCIS instructs the accessible to accredit to this webpage back free whether a Form I-797C Apprehension of Action, if presented with the asleep EAD, is adequate for Form I-9 or added purposes. Administration should attach a archetype of the webpage with the employee’s Form I-9 to certificate the addendum of appliance authorization.
USCIS will additionally update I-9 Central on the USCIS website to accommodate advisers and administration with specific advice on Form I-9 completion, including any appropriate notations advertence the automated addendum of appliance authorization.
