USCIS Modifies Application for Employment Authorization
Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, was modified as of April 8, 2008, to reflect changes made in the recent interim final rule on Optional Practical Training (OPT), published on that date in the Federal Register.
USCIS will accept the older edition of the form, dated July 30, 2007, through July 8, 2008. As of July 9, only the April 8, 2008 version will be accepted.
