E-Verify Users: Be Sure to Make Copies of Photo-Matching Documents Correctly

If a new employee presents a document for their Form I-9 that triggers photo matching in E-Verify, employers must make a copy of that document to use when creating the E-Verify case, and must retain it with the employee’s Form I-9.

If an employee presents a U.S. passport card, Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551), or Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766), you must copy the front and back of these cards. If an employee presents a U.S. passport, you must copy both the front page and the back barcode page.
