USCIS' Employment Authorization Document Revised
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has revised its Employment Authorization Document (EAD), or Form I-766, to incorporate the addition of a machine-readable zone on the back of the card. The new EAD card's machine-readable zone is compliant with International Civil Aviation Organization standards. USCIS has removed the two-dimensional bar code on the backside of the card and moved the informational box of text to just beneath the magnetic stripe on the card . The revised card retains all of its existing security features. To read USCIS' media release, please click here.
