Commencing October 1, 2023, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) will accelerate the processing of Employment Authorization Document (“EAD”) applications filed by parolees who have scheduled an appointment through the CBP One mobile app.
CBP One™ is a mobile application that serves as a single portal to a variety of Customs and Border Protection services. Through a series of guided questions, the app directs each type of user to the appropriate services based on their needs.
USCIS aims to decrease the processing time for EAD applications from 90 days to 30 days.
USCIS will also work to reduce the processing times for EAD applications under the parole processes for Cuban, Haitian, Venezuelan, and Nicaraguan nationals.
Further USCIS, aims to increase the maximum validity period of initial and renewal EADs from two years to five years for certain applicants, including those admitted as refugees and asylees; and applicants admitted for asylum and adjustment of status (“green card”).
