The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman (CIS Ombudsman) invites stakeholders to participate in a webinar to discuss online filing for Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET.
On April 12, 2021, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that certain F-1 students seeking Optional Practical Training are eligible to apply online for an employment authorization document. All other applicants will continue to file the paper Form I-765 with USCIS.
During this session, staff from the CIS Ombudsman will engage with USCIS representatives to highlight the agency’s myUSCIS account features while sharing instructions on how eligible applicants can file Form I-765 online.
The CIS Ombudsman’s webinar will serve as an information sharing and gathering session. Participants may submit written questions and comments during the webinar. The CIS Ombudsman may share submitted questions, without attribution, to USCIS for awareness. If appropriate, these questions may be used by the agency to assist in the development of outreach and engagement materials.
