DREAMers, it’s not too late!

On September 5, 2017, the Department of Justice announced the termination of
the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

But that doesn’t mean you don’t have options.

What to Know About the Deadline

  • USCIS must receive your renewal application by mail on or before October 5 so you must ACT NOW. If your application is mailed or postmarked October 5 but USCIS does not receive it until after October 5, the agency will reject your application.
  • Carefully review your application before sending. If USCIS rejects your application because of a mistake or missing document, you will not be able to resubmit after the deadline has passed.
  • Choose a delivery method with tracking to ensure your application arrives on time. That way, you can correct or resend your application should your initial delivery fail.
  • Note that the USCIS has different mailing addresses for courier deliveries and USPS deliveries. USPS deliveries go to a USPS lockbox and courier deliveries go to a street address. The USCIS website has a list of DACA application delivery addresses depending on your state of residence and the delivery method you choose.
  • For additional peace of mind, include in your application a USCIS Form G-1145. This lets you ask USCIS to send you a text message and/or email as soon as it accepts your form. Given that more than a few applicants to USCIS have tracking proof that their package arrived but are then told by USCIS that it didn’t, filing a G-1145 can be an important double-check.
