Important Update on Form I-9: Old Version Expires Soon!

USCIS is taking continuous measures to ensure that petitioners use the correct I-9 form to avoid penalties and comply with the laws. As part of this effort, USCIS has released the update on form I-9, stating that the prior version of form I-9, edition dated 10/21/19, will expire on October 30, 2023.

From November 1st, 2023 onwards, petitioners must exclusively use form I-9 for employee eligibility verification. If they fail to do so, they may be subject to all applicable penalties under section 274A of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1324a, as enforced by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Petitioners can find the form edition date (10/21/19 or 08/01/23) on the form itself at the bottom of the page. Dates are listed in mm/dd/yy format.
