New Version of Form I-9 Released
Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new version of Form I-9 that will become mandatory beginning Monday, September 18, 2017. Until Sunday, September 17, 2017, employers may choose to continue to use the prior edition of Form I-9.
With this new version, no changes have been made to the Form I-9 itself. Instead, subtle changes have been made to the Form I-9 Instructions and to the Form I-9 Handbook (M-274). For example, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (FS-240) issued by a U.S. Embassy or Consulate overseas will now be considered a List C document. For a complete list of changes to the I-9 Instructions and Handbook, please visit the USCIS website.
