DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC19 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: ●Removal of 30-Day Processing Provision for Certain Employment Authorization Applications 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to withdraw its regulatory provision stating U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has 30 days from the date an asylum applicant files the initial Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765 or EAD application) to grant or deny that application. By eliminating the 30-day provision, DHS will be able to maintain customer service, respond to national security and fraud concerns, maintain technological advances in document production, and address identity verification considerations. Pursuant to current 8 CFR 274a.13(d), DHS also proposes to make a technical amendment by deleting the provision requiring pending asylum applicants to submit Form I-765 renewal applications 90 days before their employment authorization expires.
