Beginning this week, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is expanding the photo matching portion of its E-Verify program to include U.S. passports and driver’s license data.
This change will be effective at the start of September and will give companies and organizations that use E-Verify the capability of comparing photos from an individual’s U.S. passport with that stored in the government’s online database during the I-9 verification process.    
Previously, the capability to photo match only appeared for foreign nationals who showed a recent version of their permanent resident card (Form I-551) or Employment Authorization Document during the I-9 review process.
This new change will not be mandatory for E-Verify participating employers.   
Employers, keep up with both I-9 and E-Verify requirements by visiting Personnel Concepts’ I-9 Compliance section on our Web site.
