Five Things Asylum Applicants Should Know About the 180-Day Asylum EAD Clock

Indy Chamber News Archives

The “180-day Asylum EAD Clock” measures the time period during which an asylum application has been pending with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) asylum office and/or the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). USCIS service centers adjudicate the Form 1-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and use the 180-day Asylum EAD Clock to determine eligibility for employment authorization. Asylum applicants who applied for asylum on or after January 4. 1995, must wait 150 days before they can file a Form 1-765. USCIS cannot grant employment authorization for an additional 30 days, for a total 180-day waiting period. This 180-day Asylum EAD Clock does not include any delays applicants request or cause while their applications are pending with an asylum office or immigration court.
