I-9 Revamp Delayed

The Department of Homeland Security’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has delayed the effective date of its I-9 form revisions until April 3, 2009. Read the full text of the announcement.

The revisions, announced in December 2008, will end authorization to accept expired documents, remove documents that are no longer issued from the list of acceptable documents, and make other technical changes. The original federal register announcement is available here.

For now, you should continue to use the existing I-9 Form, which is available here. After April 3, 2009, you should use the new form.
