USCIS Reminds Customers - Use Correct Edition of Form I-765 to Request Employment Authorization

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds its customers to use the correct version of the Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) dated 05/27/08. The edition date appears in the lower right hand corner of the form as “Form I-765 (Rev. 05/27/08) N".

Submission of an earlier version of Form I-765 may result in rejection of the application. The main purpose of the Form I-765 is to allow certain aliens in the United States to request employment authorization and an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Customers can access Form I-765 and its instruction by selecting the link "I-765, Application for Employment Authorization" in the related links section of this page. The I-765 form can also be accessed by selecting the Immigration Forms tab at the top of this page.
