Can I renew my work authorization?

One goal many immigrants in California who came to the United States years ago as children have is employment. Many of them find that the biggest hurdle to achieving this goal is work eligibility. Certain DACA individuals can renew their authorizations by filling out forms I-765 and I-821D on paper or online. 

Some foreign nationals wait too long to renew their work permits. What many of them do not realize is that the renewal process is not short and easy to navigate. If they qualify and do not get their renewal applications in and processed on time, they could lose the right to work legally in the United States. Here is a brief overview of the DACA work permit renewal process. 

Review work authorization documents 

It is important for foreign nationals to keep track of their work eligibility documents. Those documents provide them with legal permission to work in the United States for a certain period of time. They should not wait until the last minute to apply to have their eligibility renewed. If they cannot locate their DACA documents, they have been damaged or they contain incorrect information, it is necessary for them to apply for replacements right away. 

File renewal application in a timely manner 

Ideally, applicants should file their renewal paperwork within several months of the expiration date listed on their permits. The USCIS may also require some applicants to provide additional information and evidence before they can approve or deny their requests. There may be reasons why some foreign nationals wait until the expiration date is much closer, but delays can lead to their renewals not being processed in a timely manner.

If their renewal DACA forms contain mistakes or are not filled out completely, the USCIS will reject them. Applicants should carefully review their applications to ensure they are completely accurate. They should also be sure to include all necessary supporting documentation when asked. 

There are times when there may be a backlog of renewal work permit applications. Temporary renewal cards are available upon request with proper documentation from local USCIS offices.
