USCIS Allows Parolees to File I-765 Online
On July 28, 2022 USCIS announced that certain parolees can file their Form I-765 for an employment authorization document online. Individuals who are paroled into the US for urgent humanitarian or significant public benefit purposes who seek employment under category c(11) are eligible to file online.
Applicants who are seeking a fee waiver or are filing under a fee exemption must still file by paper. If an applicant submits Form I-765 online to request employment authorization, but is not filing under an eligible employment authorization category, USCIS may deny the application and retain the fee.
