On March 18, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that later in March 2018 E-Verify will transfer all of its case data to a new interface [PDF version]. Accordingly, prior to the transfer “all open cases much reach a final case result and be closed.”

What does this mean in effect? The USCIS explains that all open cases that have not been accessed for more than 365 days will be closed by E-Verify. Such closed cases will remain accessible to employers as completed or historical cases.

Cases that are open, have not been completed, and have been accessed within the previous 365 days will remain open for the employer to continue processing.

Cases that have received a final result will be closed when the USCIS transfers case data to a new E-Verify interface. However, these cases will also remain accessible to employers as completed or historical cases.

The USCIS encourages users to complete and close their cases prior to the deployment of the new E-Verify interface. For guidance on how to properly close an E-Verify case, the USCIS refers users to the following references:

E-Verify Quick Reference Guide for Employers (Pages 17-19) [PDF version];
E-Verify User Manual 4.1 Close Case [PDF version];
E-Verify User Manual 4.2 Case Alerts [PDF version]; and
E-Verify User Manual 4.1.1 Case Closure Statements [PDF version].

See also: E-Verify User Manual 4.0 Case Resolution: “To complete the E-Verify case process, every case must receive a final case result and be closed. E-Verify guides you through the process after you receive a final case result.”

It is important for employers to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding employment verification. Employers with case-specific questions about using E-Verify cases or other employment authorization issues may consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
