U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published the new version of form I-821D and the Department of Homeland Security has offered information regarding the requirements for the renewal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
Those applying to renew DACA will have to submit the new I-821D form, which may be found on www.uscis.gov.
As of now DHS has stated that all applicants must meet the original requirements and the following:
• Applicants must not have left the U.S. on or after Aug. 15, 2012, without advance parole
• Applicants must have resided in the U.S. continously since their original submission of the DACA application
• Applicants must not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor or three or more misdemeanors, and must not be a threat to national security or public safety
To apply for the renewal of DACA applicants must:
– Pay a total of $465 for biometrics and the registration of the I-765 form
– Register the new I-821D form for DACA, the I-765 form for employement authorization and the I-765 worksheet
USCIS recommends that the application for the renewal of DACA be submitted 4 months or 120 days prior to the expiration date. As soon as we have more details we will be sharing a video with more information.
