Today, USCIS released without notice—new form versions with effective dates
of 12/23/16. The USCIS website also indicated that no other version of the forms are acceptable (with the exception of Form I-129). On December 29, 2016 however, USCIS announced that it will accept prior versions of forms that were revised on December 23, 2016, until February 21, 2017. The only exception to this grace period is the Form N-400, as USCIS announced the version change to that form on December 13, 2016.
Affected forms include the following: I-90, I-102, I-129, I-129CW, I-129F, I-130, I-131, I-131A, I-140, I-191, I-192, I-212, I-290B, I-360, I-485, I-485 Supplement A, I-526, I-539, I-600, I-600A, I-601, I-601A, I-612, I-690, I-694, I-698, I-751, I-765, I-800, I-800A, I-817, I-824, I-910, I-924, I-924A, I-929, I-942, I-942P, N-300, N-336, N-400, N-470, N-600, and N-600K.
