移民局:疫情期间 EAD 申请人可持 I-797 批准通知工作

疫情期间,USCIS 大量办公室停止对外服务;此外,移民局于 2020 年 6 月解雇了一个承包商,导致大量工卡和绿卡制作延迟,截止 7 月已积压 15 万张。 7 月 22 日,来自印度的 H-4 持有人 Ranjitha Subramanya,因 EAD 申请获批后迟迟未收到工卡、无法工作,于俄亥俄南区联邦法院对移民局发起了集体诉讼。 8 月 3 日,法官判决,移民局的延误给等待工卡和绿卡的人带来了 「immediate threat of harm」,判令移民局在 7 天之内发卡 [判决]

8 月 19 日,移民局发布通知,如果你收到了 I-797 Approval Notice,批准日期在 2019 年 12 月 1 日至 2020 年 8 月 20 日之间,那么你可以使用这份 I-797 通知作为工作许可,而无需出示 EAD 卡。该 Approval Notice 上有模板信息,大意是说 「this is not evidence of employment authorization」,移民局明确表示你可以忽略该信息 [链接]

移民局通知原文

Due to the extraordinary and unprecedented COVID-19 public health emergency, the production of certain Employment Authorization Documents (Form I-766, EAD) is delayed.  As a result, employees may use Form I-797, Notice of Action, with a Notice date on or after December 1, 2019 through and including August 20, 2020 informing an applicant of approval of an Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) as a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, List C #7 document that establishes employment authorization issued by the Department of Homeland Security pursuant to 8 C.F.R. 274a.2(b)(1)(v)(C)(7), even though the Notice states it is not evidence of employment authorization.  Employees may present their Form I-797 Notice of Action showing approval of their I-765 application as a list C document for Form I-9 compliance until December 1, 2020.

THE I-797 NOTICE OF ACTION DESCRIBED ABOVE DOES NOT PROVE EVIDENCE OF IDENTITY OR SERVE AS A LIST A DOCUMENT ESTABLISHING BOTH IDENTITY AND EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION OR A LIST B DOCUMENT ESTABLISHING IDENTITY FOR FORM I-9 PURPOSES.

For Form I-9 completion, employees who present a Form I-797 Notice of Action described above for new employment must also present their employer with an acceptable List B document that establishes identity. The Lists of Acceptable Documents is on Form I-9.  Current employees who require reverification can present this Form I-797 Notice of Action as proof of employment authorization under List C.

By December 1, 2020, employers must reverify employees who presented this Form I-797 Notice of Action as a List C document. These employees will need to present their employers with new evidence of employment authorization from either List A or List C.

We encourage employers to accept new EADs presented by employees as soon as they receive them from USCIS prior to December 1, 2020, to satisfy the reverification requirement.  However, it is the employees’ choice whether to present their new EADs, or a different document from either List A or List C.

注意事项

  • 此通知仅限于 2019 年 12 月 1 日至 2020 年 8 月 20 日期间批准的工卡申请。
  • I-797 批准通知仅可证明你有「工作许可」,并不能像 EAD 卡那样作为 Photo ID 使用。

EAD 延期的 180 天自动许可

H-4 等 EAD 工卡自动延期恢复为 540 天

工签延期的 240 天自动许可

工签延期待审可在 I-94 过期后继续工作 240 天

  1. 请问我学生工卡和 i20 已经过期,和公民结婚刚提交了 i130 和 i485,i765,请问我已经收到 i797C 可以开始合法工作了吗?

  2. 老师:你好,我是十年绿卡 12 月到期今年 6 月申请更换,移民局只给我 i797c 的信,请问这正常吗?我可以凭着这信和过期绿卡出入美国吗?请帮我

    1. 正常。不可以。联系移民局客服,预约一个时间去最近的移民局办公室盖一个 I-551 章,带上 I-797c 。

      1. 我也已经去电移民局,工作人员说我不需要盖章,凭收据和过期绿卡岀入美国即可,现在我怎样才好,我二月回中国有急事

        1. 他口说无凭呀,万一你入境被拒,这个客服能负责?入境时检查你证件的是 Customs & Border Protection (CBP),不是 USCIS,CBP 可能要你提供你仍旧是美国永久居民的证据,你的过期绿卡不能做为证据。如果是我,为了稳妥,我会去盖个章,入境时看不看这个章是另一回事。
