Two most frequently used immigration forms have been missing from the USCIS website since yesterday:
- Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization (EAD)
- Form I-131, Application for Travel Document (AP)
USCIS hasn’t released an official notice regarding the issue. However, since the AP form expired yesterday, February 28, 2009, it was probably a technical glitch when the form was updated in the database. The EAD form has an expiration date of September 30, 2011 though.
If you need to apply for EAD and AP in the near future, you may want to wait a few days for the two forms to emerge on the USCIS website again, hopefully next Monday. Click the above links to see if the forms show up, instead of “No content item selected .” If you need to access the forms immediately, here are the Google cached pages that still have the old EAD and AP forms before they disappeared:
- Form I-765, Cached Page
- Form I-131, Cached Page
Cached pages will change when search engines refresh their snapshots of websites. If USCIS hasn’t fixed the problem before then, you will lose the cached documents as well. Just in case that happens, you can download the EAD and AP forms from the links below. Keep in mind that these saved copies may become outdated, so use with caution.
