is necessary in performing that service—must submit certain documentation that satisfactorily demonstrates that the
applicant is lawfully present in the United States. If the documentation does not contain a photograph of the applicant,
the applicant must also present a government issued document that contains a photograph.
Directions: All individual applicants for a license or certification covered by these laws must complete this form
