  • News: DHS To Release Solution To SSN And Driver’s License Problems Faced By F-Visa and M-Visa Holders This Week

    Social Security Number and Driver’s License Issues

    September 6, 2012

    Social Security Number and Driver’s License Issues

    The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is aware of current difficulties that some F and M students have when applying for a Social Security number (SSN) or driver’s license. SEVP and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program are working on a solution that they will implement on September 14, 2012.

    Currently, you have two options:

    1. Return to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or Social Security Administration (SSA) office in your state on or after September 14, 2012.

    2. E-mail dmvssa.sevp@ice.dhs.gov, which may take longer than option one. Include the following in your e-mail:

      1. Benefit requested (SSN or driver’s license)

      2. Family name

      3. First name

      4. Date of birth

      5. Form I-94, “Arrival/Departure Record,” admission number (11 digits)

      6. SEVIS ID

      7. Applicant’s physical address (required), phone number (required), and e-mail

      8. Address of the office where problem occurred (and the name of the official, if known)

      9. Date of the latest visit to office

      10. SAVE case number (if available)

      11. Current driver’s license/customer number and/or DMV receipt number (for DMV customers, if available)

    While SEVP does not process benefits, a representative will contact SSA or your state DMV on your behalf to help with processing.

    You can also contact the SEVP Response Center with further questions at either 703-603-3400 or SEVP@ice.dhs.gov.

    • News: Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen
      ImmigrationDaily
      Re-Registration Period Now Open for Temporary Protected Status for Yemen Versión en español WASHINGTON — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under Yemen’s designation who want to maintain their status through the extension date of March 3, 2020, must re-register between August 14, 2018, and October 15, 2018. Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization documents (EADs), have been published in the Federal Register and on uscis.gov/tps . All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. Applicants may also request an EAD by submitting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, at the time they file Form I-821, or separately at a later date. Like all USCIS forms, both forms are free for download from the USCIS website at uscis.gov/tps . USCIS will issue new EADs with a March 3, 2020, expiration date to eligible Yemen TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, however, we recognize that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on Sept. 3, 2018. Accordingly, we have automatically extended the validity of EADs for 180 days, through March 2, 2019. ...
