What is DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a United States immigration policy that allows some individuals with unlawful presence in the United States after being brought to the country as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit



How do I request DACA for the first time?

If you qualify for DACA based on the pre-expansion requirements, you can submit your request for DACA on the USCIS Form I-821D, Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. You must complete and submit the most recent version of the form. The most recent version of the form has the following printed in the bottom left corner of each page:

Form I-821D 06/04/14 N

If you do not use the most recent version of the form, your application may be sent back to you.

If you do not currently have DACA and are submitting an initial request, make sure you fill out all the items in the form that are labeled “For Initial Requests.”

Along with the I-821D form, you must complete and file Forms I‑765 and I-765WS to request a work permit. Information about work permits is available on USCIS’s website at www.uscis.gov/i-765. You must show an economic need for employment in order to get the work permit.

It is also recommended that you complete and file Form G-1145 to request an electronic notification either by email or text when USCIS receives your application. Some applicants submit their applications by certified mail to ensure their delivery.

More information and instructions about where to mail your application packet are available from www.uscis.gov/i-821d. If USCIS finds that your request is complete, you will be sent a receipt notice. USCIS will then send you an appointment notice to visit an Application Support Center (ASC) in order to be fingerprinted and photographed. Once a final decision has been made on your request, USCIS will send you a written notice of the decision.
