USCIS Issues Revised Employment Authorization Document (EAD)

The USCIS announced today that it has revised the Employment Authorization Document (EAD), or Form I-766, as part of its ongoing efforts to enhance security and deter immigration fraud. The revised EAD cards feature the addition of a machine-readable zone with an informational box of text beneath the magnetic stripe and removal of the previous two-dimensional bar code on the back of the card. The USCIS began issuing the revised EAD cards on May 11, 2010.
