USCIS Issuing Form I-797C to Extend EADs for Certain Afghan Parolees

New document combination adds yet another unlisted document combination employers are responsible for knowing under penalty of fines and sanctions.

Certiphi has recently been informed that USCIS is now issuing Forms I-797C to Afghan nationals whose parole status - and EAD - is about to expire. This document, which is part of a larger "re-parole" process that allows certain Afghan nationals to remain in the United States past the "Admit Until" date on the Form I-94, will read:

  • Notice Type: Additional Action
  • Class: C11
  • Valid Until: MM/DD/YYYY.

See below for an example of this Form I-797C:

An individual seeking to extend the validity of their Employment Authorization Document (EAD or Form I-766) must present the EAD and this Form I-797C together, and persons completing Form I-9 must examine both. The "Valid Until" date listed on Form I-797C will become the EAD's new expiration date.

Certain Afghan and Ukrainian nationals are work authorized incident to their status in the country and may use Form I-94 to evince work authorization for an initial ninety-day period. For more, click here.
