USCIS Message: New Rule on the Recognition of Organizations and Accreditation of Non-Attorney Representatives


Dear Stakeholder,

The U.S Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) announced a final rule titled, Recognition of Organizations and Accreditation of Non-Attorney Representatives on Tuesday, December 20, 2016. This new rule, effective Jan. 18, 2017, amends the regulations governing the requirements and procedures for authorizing representatives of non-profit religious, charitable, social service, or similar organizations to represent persons in proceedings before EOIR and the Department of Homeland Security.

For more information, please read the full EOIR press release. EOIR also released a training video on the final rule. Visit the USCIS Avoid Scams Initiative for more information on common scams and other important tips.

Kind Regards,
