Renewal and Expiry Information
When dealing with USCIS Form G-28I, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney in Matters Outside the Geographical Confines of the United States, it is crucial to be mindful of its expiration and renewal protocols. This form is used to establish a representative’s ability to act on behalf of a client in immigration proceedings.
Current Edition and Usage:
As per the latest update, the edition dated 05/23/18 remains valid. Applicants and representatives may continue utilizing this version even if the noted expiration date has passed, until a new edition is published.
Checking the Edition Date:
One can find the edition date at the bottom of the form. It is important to always use the most recent version to avoid delays in the processing of immigration matters.
Upon the conclusion of the matter for which Form G-28I was initially filed, if representation is required for a new matter, a fresh Form G-28I must be completed, signed, and submitted to the relevant immigration agency.
After submission, Form G-28I is recognized until the matter’s conclusion or unless otherwise notified by the involved immigration agencies, namely USCIS, CBP, or ICE.
