ACTION: Notice; extension of Employment Authorization Documents validity date. AGENCY: On July 8, 2016, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) extended the designation of El Salvador for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for a period of 18 months by notice in the Federal Register. Through the same notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) automatically extended for 6 months the validity of Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) issued under the TPS designation of El Salvador with a September 9, 2016 expiration date printed on the card. These EADs are currently valid through March 9, 2017. USCIS is now automatically extending the validity of these EADs for an additional 6 months, through September 9, 2017. DATES: The automatic extension of the validity of EADs issued under TPS for El Salvador that was set to expire on March 9, 2017, is now extended through September 9, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: • For further information on TPS, including guidance on the application process and additional information on eligibility, please visit the USCIS TPS Web page at http://www.uscis.gov/tps. You can find specific information about El Salvador’s designation for TPS by selecting ‘‘El Salvador’’ from the menu on the left of the TPS Web page. • You can also contact Guillermo Roman-Riefkohl, TPS Operations Program Manager, Service Center Operations Directorate, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, 20 Massachusetts Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20529– 2060; or by phone at 202–272–1533 (this asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:24 Mar 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 is not a toll-free number). Note: The phone number provided here is solely for questions regarding this TPS Notice. It is not for individual case status inquires. • Applicants seeking information about the status of their individual cases can check Case Status Online, available at the USCIS Web site at http:// www.uscis.gov, or call the USCIS National Customer Service Center at 800–375–5283 (TTY 800–767–1833). Service is available in English and Spanish. • Further information will also be available at local USCIS offices upon publication of this Notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When did the Secretary last extend El Salvador’s TPS designation? On July 8, 2016, the Secretary extended the TPS designation for El Salvador for a period of 18 months by notice in the Federal Register. See 81 FR 44645. That extension of El Salvador’s TPS designation is effective from September 10, 2016 through March 9, 2018. Is the Secretary extending El Salvador’s TPS designation through this Notice? No. This Notice does not extend El Salvador’s TPS designation past the existing March 9, 2018 expiration date of the current extension announced on July 8, 2016. This Notice also does not extend the re-registration period for existing TPS El Salvador beneficiaries under the extension announced on July 8, 2016, which ran from July 8, 2016 through September 6, 2016. What is the effect of this Notice on the validity of EADs issued under TPS for El Salvador? DHS previously extended for 6 months all EADs issued under TPS for El Salvador that currently display an expiration date of September 9, 2016; they currently expire on March 9, 2017. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does not expect to be able to process all timely-received TPS re-registration applications and issue new EADs before these extended EADs expire. Accordingly, through this Notice, USCIS automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of El Salvador for an additional 6 months, through September 9, 2017. Am I eligible to receive an additional automatic 6-month extension of my current EAD through September 9, 2017? If you currently have TPS under the designation of El Salvador, this Notice PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12629 automatically extends your EAD an additional 6 months through September 9, 2017, if you: • Received an EAD under the last extension of TPS for El Salvador; and • Have an EAD with a marked expiration date of September 9, 2016, bearing the notation ‘‘A–12’’ or ‘‘C– 19’’on the front of the card under ‘‘Category.’’ When hired, what documentation may I show to my employer as proof of employment authorization and identity when completing Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9)? You can find a list of acceptable document choices on the ‘‘Lists of Acceptable Documents’’ for Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9). You can find additional detailed information on the USCIS I–9 Central Web page at http:// www.uscis.gov/I-9Central. Employers are required to verify the identity and employment authorization of all new employees by using Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9). Within 3 days of hire, an employee must present proof of identity and employment authorization to his or her employer. You may present any document from List A (reflecting both your identity and employment authorization) or one document from List B (reflecting identity) together with one document from List C (reflecting employment authorization). Or you may present an acceptable receipt for List A, List B, or List C documents as described in the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9) Instructions. An EAD is an acceptable document under ‘‘List A.’’ Employers may not reject a document based on a future expiration date. If your EAD has an expiration date of September 9, 2016, and states ‘‘A–12’’ or ‘‘C–19’’ under ‘‘Category,’’ it has been extended automatically beyond the previous automatic extension for an additional 6 months. It is now valid through September 9, 2017, by virtue of this Federal Register Notice, and you may choose to present your EAD to your employer as proof of identity and employment authorization for Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9) through September 9, 2017 (see the subsection titled ‘‘How do my employer and I complete the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I–9) using an automatically extended EAD for a new job?’’ for further information). To minimize confusion over this extension at the time of hire, you should explain to your employer that USCIS automatically extended your EAD through September E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1
