***Please note that you may not apply for employment authorization under the new H-4 rule until May 26, 2015***
USCIS recently published the revised Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization with a 02/13/15, edition date. You can download the revised form and details about who may file and where to file Form I-765 from the USCIS forms page.
The revised Form I-765 contains the eligibility category (c)(26) for certain
H-4 dependent spouses to apply for employment authorization. If you are filing under the new H-4 rule, please provide the receipt number of your H-1B principal spouse’s most recent Form I-797 Notice of Approval for Form I-129.
Please note that you may not apply for employment authorization under the new H-4 rule until May 26, 2015. While USCIS will continue to accept versions of the form with edition date 05/27/08 or later, H-4 applicants should use the 02/13/15 version of the form to prevent delays or the need for USCIS to issue you a request for evidence. For more information about the H-4 rule and eligibility for employment authorization under the H-4 rule, please visit Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses Web page.
USCIS recommends that you download the revised form, which prompts customers to fill out the form completely and helps improve USCIS’ ability to process the form.
