09 Mar USCIS Seeks Faster Processing of I-765 Work Permits
Washington, D.C., March 8, 2022: In a recent announcement, USCIS notified the public that it was seeking faster adjudication of I-765 temporary work permit applications filed under I-485 Adjustment of Status. To improve efficiency and reduce Form I-765 processing times for Form I-485 applicants, USCIS may decouple Forms I-765 from Forms I-131 filed at the same time. Effective Feb. 1, 2022, when possible, USCIS will adjudicate the request for employment authorization first and, if it is approved, we will issue an Employment Authorization Document without any notation about advanced parole. We will adjudicate the Form I-131 separately and, if it is approved, we will issue an Advance Parole Document.
