Who Is Eligible to File USCIS Form I-765?
If you’re not a U.S. citizen, you’ll likely fall under one of the following three categories of individuals who are eligible to work within the us.
- Category 1: You’re authorized to work within the U.S. due to your current immigration status.
- Category 2: You’re authorized to work for a selected employer as a result of your nonimmigrant status.
- Category 3: You’re in an immigration category that requires you to request a work authorization document in order to work in the U.S.
To be legally employed within the U.S, you’re required to present legal documentation to an employer that proves that you’re authorized to work in the U.S.
- U.S. citizens can meet this requirement by showing proof of their U.S. citizenship and another government issued ID or document to confirm their status.
- Lawful permanent residents can meet this requirement by showing their Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)
- Refugees can meet this requirement by showing their Form I-94, Arrival-Departure Record, which features a red stamp indicating employment is permitted.
- Asylees (people granted asylum within the United States) can meet this requirement by presenting an unrestricted Social Security card, EAD and/or Form I-94 that features a red stamp indicating employment is permitted .
- Certain nonimmigrant visa holders who are eligible to work for a selected employer can show their Form I-94 Arrival-Departure record with their nonimmigrant visa, which normally indicates the name of the employer for whom you’re authorized to work for. You’ll get information from your Form I-94 by visiting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
- Most others will need to submit for I-765 to request an employment authorization document, or evidence of employment authorization incident to status, and receive an EAD as proof of their employment authorization before they can work in the U.S.
