The SSN applicant must submit both of the following documents as evidence of employment
authorization for a nonimmigrant E2C.
Evidence of nonimmigrant status per RM 10211.135 showing COA E2C; and
I-129 (Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker) approval notice on Form I-797A or I-797B
(Notice of Action) for an E2C principal authorizing employment. To determine whether
the approval notice for the principal E2C authorizes work, see RM 10210.678.
This evidence is only acceptable during the transition period to full application
of U.S. immigration law that concludes on December 31, 2014. However, on June 3, 2014
the Department of Homeland Security extended the E2C program until December 31, 2019.
