Foreign nationals who are in the United States may file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, to request employment authorization and an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Asylum applicants who are convicted of an aggravated felony, cannot be granted employment authorization under this eligibility category.
USCIS will make the determination as to whether your convictions meet the definition of aggravated felony. Applicants who fall under the (c)(35) and (c)(36) eligibility categories who are convicted of a felony or two or more misdemeanors committed, cannot be granted employment authorization under this eligibility category.
