USCIS has announced the production of a newly redesigned Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and Certificate of Citizenship (Form N-560) with enhanced security features to prevent counterfeiting and allow for easier authentication. USCIS, along with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Forensic Document Laboratory, have incorporated state-of-the-art technology into the redesign process, including tactile features and greatly improved printing techniques to deter tampering. USCIS began issuing the new EADs on Oct. 25th and will issue the new Certificates of Citizenship beginning Oct. 30th. All previously issued EADs will remain valid until the expiration date on the card. Additionally, all previously issued Certificates of Citizenship will remain valid indefinitely.
