Employment Eligibility Verification in Miami

Helping You Understand the I-9 Form

Any person working in the United States is now required to fill out an I-9 employment eligibility verification form. This form allows the U.S. government to verify the person’s legal authorization to work in the United States. The employment visa I-9 form must be filled out within three business days of each person’s start date of employment, whether they are a citizen or an immigrant.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may need to complete various employment visa I-9 forms whenever there is a renewal or other change with your visa or if you obtain a new visa. Whenever you complete an I-9 form, you will also be required to present several forms of identification to verify your identity and eligibility to work in the United States.

These forms of identification may include any of the following:

  • U.S. Passport
  • Permanent Resident Card ( Green Card)
  • Temporary Resident Card
  • Employment Authorization Card
  • Employment Authorization Document with photograph
  • Driver’s License
  • Federal or State ID
  • School ID with photograph
  • U.S. Armed Services ID Card
  • U.S. Social Security Card
  • Birth Certificate issued by the U.S. State Department
  • Certificate of U.S. Citizenship or Naturalization
  • U.S. Citizen ID Card
