Revised Form I-765 Now Available

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently published the revised Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization with a 02/13/15, edition date.

The revised Form I-765 contains the eligibility category (c)(26) for certain H-4 dependent spouses to apply for employment authorization. If you are filing under the new H-4 rule, please provide the receipt number of your H-1B principal spouse’s most recent Form I-797 Notice of Approval for Form I-129.

Please note that you may not apply for employment authorization under the new H-4 rule until May 26, 2015. While USCIS will continue to accept versions of the form with edition date 05/27/08 or later, H-4 applicants should use the 02/13/15 version of the form to prevent delays or the need for USCIS to issue you a request for evidence. For more information about the H-4 rule and eligibility for employment authorization under the H-4 rule, please visit our Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses Web page.
