Application for Employment Authorization

Posted by Alexander Carl | 30 Jul, 2020 | 0 Comments

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it will reuse previously submitted biometrics in order to process valid Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, extension requests due to the temporary closure of Application Support Centers (ASC) to the public in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This means Applicants who have filed for extension (renewal) of their employment authorization and had a biometrics appointment scheduled on or after March 18, 2020 (The date USCIS closed their ASC centers) will not need to complete their biometrics  – USCIS will use their previous biometrics from their initial I-765 application and continue to process their application for extension of the I-765. 

USCIS will provide further updates as the situation develops and will continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance. Please visit for the latest facts and other USCIS updates.
