The Executive Office for Immigration Review Reminds Attorneys and Fully Accredited Representatives to Complete the eRegistry Process
This notice serves as a reminder to all attorneys and fully accredited representatives who practice before the immigration courts and the Board of Immigration
Appeals (BIA) to complete steps one and two of the eRegistry process by Dec. 10, 2013. On that date, registration becomes a requirement to appear before EOIR.
Complete details on eRegistry are available at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/engage/eRegistration.htm.
For step one of the eRegistry process, applicants will need to create an online profile by entering their contact information and some personally identifiable
information. After completing the online portion of the registration, applicants will need to complete step two by appearing in person at an immigration court
or the BIA to complete the identity verification process. The immigration courts and the BIA are open during regular business hours to review photo
identification. For more information about step two, please see http://www.justice.gov/eoir/engage/eRegistry/courts-eRegistry.htm.
- EOIR -
Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) is an agency within the Department of
Justice. Under delegated authority from the Attorney General, immigration
judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals interpret and adjudicate
immigration cases according to United States immigration laws. EOIR’s
immigration judges conduct administrative court proceedings in immigration
courts located throughout the nation. They determine whether foreign-born
individuals—whom the Department of Homeland Security charges with
violating immigration law—should be ordered removed from the United States or
should be granted relief from removal and be permitted to remain in this
country. The Board of Immigration Appeals primarily reviews appeals of
decisions by immigration judges. EOIR’s Office of the Chief Administrative
Hearing Officer adjudicates immigration-related employment cases. EOIR is
committed to ensuring fairness in all of the cases it adjudicates.
