Is E-Verify available to employers hiring individuals in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI)?

Yes, E-Verify is currently available for CNMI employers. 

From November 28, 2009 until November 27, 2011, employers hiring individuals in the CNMI used Form I-9 CNMI rather than the standard Form I-9 to verify the identity and employment authorization of their new hires. Form I-9 CNMI was the same as the standard Form I-9, with one exception: Form I-9 CNMI contained additional List A documents issued by the CNMI government that are not acceptable on the standard Form I-9. These additional documents were only acceptable until November 27, 2011. E-Verify was not available in the CNMI during this two-year period when employers were using Form I-9 CNMI. 

As of November 28, 2011, employers hiring individuals in the CNMI must use the standard Form I-9.
