Complete Form I-765 in a few easy steps

The Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Form I-765 is a legal work permit issued by the USCIS. The EAD Card allows foreign nationals to work anywhere in the United States of America.


How to Apply for a U.S. Work Permit using Form I-765

Foreign nationals who are temporarily residing in the U.S. and are eligible to work may file an application for employment. The EAD card is issued for a specific period of time that directly depends on the applicant’s immigration status. Employers do not need to file a nonimmigrant worker petition if the foreign national has already obtained the EAD card.

Important: If you have received work authorization for a specific employer and/or a private business, you will not be required to obtain the EAD card.

Foreign nationals may file Form I-765 in the following cases:

  • EAD Application
  • EAD Renewal - Your previous card has expired.
  • EAD Replacement - Your previous card was lost/stolen/destroyed/contains wrong or expired information.
  • Asylees
  • Asylum Seekers
  • Citizens of Certain Countries
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
  • Deferred Removal
  • Dependents of official foreign government
  • Domestic Servants
  • E1/E2 Treaty Trader or Investor's spouse
  • Family Members of Citizens or Permanent Residents
  • Fiancés and spouses of American citizens
  • Foreign Students seeking a specific type of employment
  • J-2 spouse or minor children of Exchange visitors
  • L-1 Intracompany Transferee spouse
  • Non-immigrant holders of U or T visas
  • Refugees
  • Temporary Protected Status applicants (TPS)

To correctly file this application, you will first need to identify the category in which you are eligible, so you can provide the correct required documentation. If relevant to your category you may be asked to provide income information, student papers, residence, and marital status confirmation, etc., depending on your personal situation.

After successfully completing and filing Form I-765, you should receive your EAD permit, in the shape of a credit card.

You will need to submit the following along with your application:

  • Two identical photos, taken within 30 days of filing your application, both meeting the USCIS requirements
  • A photocopied record of your I-94 Arrival-Departure document front and back
  • All the previously verified documentation for your category
  • Application fee record (check eligibility category)
  • Biometrics fee (check eligibility category)
  • Previously obtained/expired EAD cards

The standard I-765 processing time is 90 days. However, processing times are subject to delays depending on requests for more evidence or extraordinary circumstances surrounding the applicant's petition.
