Newly issued Employment Authorization Card now acceptable with Form I-9

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is now issuing employment and travel authorization on a single card for certain applicants filing an Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Form I-485.

While it looks similar to the current Employment Authorization Document (EAD), the credit card-sized Employment Authorization Card includes new text that serves as both an employment authorization and Advance Parole document. The combination card is also more secure and durable than the paper Advance Parole document.

Employers may accept the new card as a “List A" document to prove the identity and work eligibility of a newly hired employee when completing the Form I-9.
