Posted by Giselle Ayala | Aug 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

Have you heard that when you learn the answers, then, they change the questions? Exactly that usually happens in immigration matters, which is why it is so important to have adequate legal counsel.

On June 26, 2020, USCIS announced the issuance of a new rule that modifies the regulations of the Department of Homeland Security related to asylum applications, immigration interviews, and eligibility criteria for applying for employment authorization based on a pending asylum application. The new final rule will take effect on August 25, 2020. As of August 25, 2020, those who wish to request an initial work authorization document or those who wish to renew their work authorization in the context of an asylum application, must submit biometrics and pay the biometrics services fee . Those who wish to complete these requests must pay $ 410, plus $ 85 for biometrics.

As of August 25, USCIS will only accept applications submitted with the new form I-765. The current form I-765 dated 12/26/19 will only be accepted if the petition is received before this date. Regarding the new form, USCIS has reported on its website that new questions have been included for applicants with pending asylum applications.
