improve the administration of immigration benefits

Writer : acc Date : 2016-02-18 (Th) 15:42 Clicks : 1266

Dear Stakeholder,

Please join the Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman for a teleconference on issues related to Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) benefits for certain nonimmigrant workers (and their dependents), including H and L nonimmigrants.  Individuals whose employers file timely for extension of nonimmigrant status receive an automatic 240-day extension of work authorization while the petition remains unadjudicated.  However, USCIS does not provide these individuals with documentary evidence of status to present DMV officials as they seek to renew their expired drivers’ licenses.  Some states allow DMV offices to issue drivers’ licenses while extensions are pending, but many do not, and the individuals must await USCIS final adjudication of their extensions of stay.  The Ombudsman is interested in hearing from affected individuals and employers about this issue, and participants will have an opportunity to provide input during the Q&A section of the teleconference.  

When:  Thursday, February 25, 2016

2 - 3 PM Eastern Time

Please RSVP with “DMV Benefits” in the subject line by Wednesday February 24, 2016  Teleconference call-in information will be provided upon RSVP.

The Ombudsman hosts a monthly public teleconference series to share information about relevant topics and provide an opportunity to hear feedback from the community about issues related to the delivery of immigration benefits and services.
