Update on Deferred Enforced Departure for Liberians

Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Liberians will terminate on March 31, 2019.

USCIS has now published filing instructions in the Federal Register for those Liberians affected who wish to extend their employment authorization through the DED termination date.  Employment authorization is automatically extended until September 30, 2018 for Liberian DED beneficiaries who have employment authorization documents with an expiration date of March 31, 2018.  Those who wish to extend their employment authorization until the 2019 termination date must apply by filing a Form I-765.  USCIS started accepting these applications on March 30, 2018 and advises beneficiaries to apply as soon as possible to avoid possible gaps in employment authorization.
