Key revisions proposed to the form include:
- Expanded Form I-9 instructions and a revised layout;
- New, optional data fields to collect the employee’s email address and telephone number; and
- New data fields to collect a foreign passport number and country of issuance (for aliens authorized to work in the U.S. who have also recorded their I-94 admission number on Form I-9).
Employers Should Use Current Version of Form I-9 Until Final Changes Approved
USCIS will post information regarding a new Form I-9 on I-9 Central once the form has been finalized. Until a new version is approved and posted, employers must continue to use the current version of the form.
I-9 Central includes information about employer and employee rights and responsibilities, step-by-step instructions for completing the form, and information on acceptable documents for establishing identity and employment authorization.
