U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that the new Passport Card can be used for employment eligibility verification purposes on Form I-9. The Passport Card is considered an I-9 Form "List A" document, which proves both identity and work authorization. The Passport Card is an alternative to traditional U.S. passport books and can be used only for land and sea travel between the United States and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda. The Department of State has received and adjudicated well over 350,000 applications for the U.S. Passport Card so human resources professionals who are responsible for I-9 verification should be aware of and familiar with its use, appearance and layout. The Department of State began production of the card on July 14, 2008. For more information regarding the Passport Card please Click Here.
