USCIS Changes I-9 Document List

The United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a change in the acceptable "List A" documents that you may NO LONGER accept to establish identity and employment eligibility. The change is effective immediately even though USCIS has not yet revised the official form.

The following are no longer acceptable:

List Item #

Document Title


Certificate of U.S. Citizenship - INS Forms N-560 or N-561


Certificate of Naturalization - INS Forms N-550 or N-570


Form I-151 (Form I-551 remains an acceptable)


Unexpired Reentry Permit - INS Form I-327


Unexpired Refugee Travel Document - INS Form I-571

What Should You Do?

  • Require completed I-9 Forms from all new employees within three business days after the beginning work.
  • Keep I-9 forms in a separate file organized alphabetically by each employees last name and available for inspection by USCIS representatives.
  • Retain I-9 Forms until the later of 3 years from hire date or 1 year after termination.
