Updated I-9 Regulations

Documents that were once acceptable are no longer allowed by I-9 updates

Though there is not an updated form of the I-9 since UMB no. 1615-0047, there is updated information on what documents are no longer acceptable to establish both identity and Employment Eligibility for the I-9.  The documents are categorized under List A and are as follows:

  1. Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561)

  2. Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550 or N-570)

  3. Form I-151 (Permanent Resident Card or Alien Registration Receipt Card with photograph)

  4. Unexpired Reentry Permit (Form I-327)

  5. Unexpired Refugee Travel Document (Form I-571)


USCIS is working on a new updated I-9 with an updated OMB no., until then employers can keep using the UMB no. 1615-0047 until the updated form is issued.
