USCIS Automatically Renews Work Permits for Immigrants
US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced an interim rule that extends the automatic renewal period for work permits and work permit documents (EADs) to 540 days.
This time extension will take effect May 4, 2022 and, according to a USCIS press release, will help avoid gaps in the employment of non-citizens waiting for EAD extension applications to be processed and stabilize the situation for US employers.
“USCIS is working to review the backlog of EAD renewal applications. That being said, the agency has determined that the current 180-day automatic renewal of work permits is not currently sufficient, said USCIS Director Ur M. Juddou. "This temporary rule will provide non-citizens with the opportunity to keep their jobs and provide critical support to their families while avoiding disruption to U.S. employers."
For several years, USCIS was in a precarious financial position, which prevented the efficient handling of cases. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated these problems, so a decision was made to automatically renew work permits so that delays in processing do not create problems for the labor market.
Automatic renewal only applies to those categories of EADs currently eligible for an automatic renewal of up to 180 days previously decided by USCIS. To these permissions, the Service will automatically add another 360 days, for a total of up to 540 days. Categories of applicants whose work permits can be automatically renewed for up to 540 days can be found link.
Automatic renewal terminates upon notification of a final decision on an application to renew a work permit or upon expiration of a period of 540 days (i.e. 540 days after the applicant's EAD expires for which they have applied for renewal), whichever comes first .
Starting October 27, 2023, automatic renewal of work permits and EAD will return to the 180-day period for applicants who file timely renewal applications - Form I-765.
