Change of Filing Location for Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization

Feb 25, 2010 | Forms

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced revised filing instructions and addresses for applicants filing an Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765).

Beginning February 24, 2010 applicants must now submit Form I-765 to one of the USCIS Lockbox facilities or the USCIS Vermont Service Center, based on the classification under which they are filing.  Detailed guidance can be found in updated Form I-765 instructions.

The Service Centers will forward incorrectly filed applications to the USCIS Phoenix and Dallas Lockbox facilities for the first 30 days, until March 26, 2010. After March 26, 2010, applications incorrectly filed at USCIS Service Centers will be returned to the applicant, with a note to send the application to the correct location.
