|Note: As of August 3, 2015, the July 15, 2015 Fact Sheet has been archived. For the latest information on this topic, visit the Quick Facts We b page.|
DACA recipients should be advised the three-year work permit recall only applies to SOME individuals who received a card after the February 16, 2015, court order.
If you received a letter or were contacted directly by USCIS regarding the recall of certain three-year work permits, you must IMMEDIATELY return your three-year work permit, also called an Employment Authorization Document, to your local USCIS office.
If you fail to return your card, USCIS will terminate your DACA and all employment authorizations effective July 31, 2015. Please carefully read the information USCIS sent to you or visit uscis.gov for details.
New resources are available at uscis.gov including:
- A new online tool that three-year DACA recipients can use to verify whether they need to return their work permit
- A new quick facts Web page
- A fact sheet (also available in Spanish, Chinese (PDF, 201.46 KB), Korean (PDF, 276.79 KB), Tagalog (PDF, 44.66 KB) and Vietnamese (PDF, 148.67 KB))
If you have not been contacted by USCIS and you received a three-year card after February 16, 2015, you should use the new online tool or call the USCIS Customer Service line at 800-375-5283 and select option 1 for English, then option 8 to verify whether you are affected BEFORE returning your card.
