It is well worth reading yourself, but I will highlight a few of the most interesting points from the Q and A.
- The NSC explained the best procedures for requesting expedited processing of an application for a refugee travel document.
- The NSC explained that under current policies, a renewed EAD for an asylee or refugee will have a renewal date on the day the Form I-765 is approved, and will not be backdated to the day after the previous EAD expired. However, USCIS is considering changing this policy.
- The NSC stated that asylees and refugees should continue following instructions on the Form I-485 regarding required documentation that must be submitted with the Form I-485.
- The NSC stated that a refugee who has had an overseas medical examination and has no Class A medical issues “only needs to submit the vaccination supplement (Part 1, 2, 4 (biographical info/signature pages) and Part 7 (vaccination supplement) of Form I-693).”
