At Quiroga Law Office, PLLC, we are pleased to report that USCIS has extended the validity of work permits from 180 to 540 days for nearly 800,000 immigrants, including asylum seekers, TPS recipients, and Green Card applicants. This policy seeks to address the backlog of cases and staff shortages that have caused significant delays in the processing of immigration procedures. Applicable to those who have applied for renewal from October 27, 2023, to September 30, 2025, this measure will allow immigrants to work without worrying about expired permits. Beneficiaries can present their expired permit along with the renewal receipt that explains the extension granted, simplifying the validation of their status before employers. From our firm, we celebrate this rule that facilitates job stability for immigrants, reflecting USCIS’ commitment to improving its services to the immigrant community.
