USCIS reminds applicants that, if requesting either an initial or renewal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), individuals must submit Form I-765, the Application for Employment Authorization, and its required fees. USCIS will reject any request that does not include Form I-765 with Form I-821D, Consideration for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
USCIS urges applicants to submit renewal requests between 150 and 120 days before the expiration date listed on the current Form I-797 DACA approval notice and Employment Authorization Document. USCIS’ current goal, it reports, is to process DACA renewal requests within 120 days.
