Update on DACA 3 Year Work Permits

Update on DACA 3 Year Work Permits

USCIS has accounted for over 99 percent of the approximately 2,600 identified invalid work permits requiring return. Twenty-two of the approximately 2,600 recipients failed to return their work permits or certify good cause for not doing so by the deadline of July 30, 2015. As a result, those 22 have been terminated from DACA.

The recall only applied to SOME individuals who received a card after the Feb. 16, 2015, court order. There are approximately 108,000 individuals who have valid 3-year DACA work permits and do not need to return them. If you were affected by the recall and returned your invalid 3-year work permit, use Case Status Online to verify whether USCIS received your work permit.

If…  Then Case Status Online will show:
USCIS received your card/certification The date we sent you a Confirmation of Compliance Notice
You did not return your invalid work permit The date we sent you a Termination Notice

Note: If you are still in possession of your invalid 3-year work permit, you must return it.

You are not affected by the recall The last action on your case

If you returned your card and your DACA and work authorization was terminated, please:
