USCIS Confirms Acceptable Evidence of Employment Authorization for Certain E and L Nonimmigrant Spouses

Following the Shergill, et al. v. Mayorkas settlement, U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) started issuing I-94 forms on January 30, 2022, with new Class of Admission (COA) codes for certain E and L spouses as evidence of their employment authorization incident to status.
