USCIS Revises Employment Authorization Document!

In a bid to keep a check on the immigration fraud, the country’s immigration department has revised the Employment Authorization Document (EAD). The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has recently unveiled a reviewed version of the Employment Authorization Document.

The US Employment Authorization Document is commonly known as the Form I-766. Now, the new version of the document will be provided to overseas people who made their way to the US to engage in work by obtaining a visa. It will carry a zone that is readable by machine on its back side. The immigration department has already started issuing the Employment Authorization Document to US visa holders since May 11, 2010.

The reason behind the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ decision to revise the Employment Authorization Document is its intention to battle deceitful issues related to immigration. The machine-readable zone complies with International Civil Aviation Organization standards.

Other significant revisions to the Employment Authorization Document are the deletion of the two-dimensional bar code on its back and the repositioning of the informational text box. However, other security features of the document are being restored.

The revisions to the EAD were the result of cooperation between the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and various branches of the U.S. homeland Security Department. The Employment authorization Document facilitates US visa holders in starting their work in the nation.
