G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as
Attorney or Accredited Representative
Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative is for attorneys
and accredited representatives to provide information to establish their eligibility to appear for and
act on behalf of an applicant, petitioner, requester, beneficiary or derivative, or respondent in
immigration matters.
An attorney or accredited representative must complete and submit a new Form G-28 form for each
client case. Form G-28 can be started along with a client's new case or it can be added to a client's
already-submitted case. USCIS will only recognize a completed Form G-28 once the client has
reviewed and signed the form.
Each attorney or accredited representative appearing in a case must submit their own Form G-28
and USCIS only recognizes one Form G-28 at a time.

Before you start the form
Who should complete this form
The G-28 is used to officially establish a relationship between you and your
representative. This form should only be completed by an attorney or accredited
representative (as defined in 8 CFR 1.2 and 1292) you have chosen to appear and act
on your behalf in immigration matters.

After you submit the form
You add your representative in your USCIS account
After your representative completes Form G-28, they will contact you and give you a
one-time passcode. You will need to sign in to your USCIS account (or create a new
one) and enter this code to officially add your representative.

Your representative completes your online form (for new cases)
Once you have reviewed and signed Form G-28, a link will appear on your
representative's account home page that takes them to the online form you want to
be completed on your behalf.
If your representative is adding Form G-28 to your already-submitted case, the case's
status will be updated referencing the form.

You review the information in your online form
Once your representative is done filling out your online form, we will send it to you
for your review.
If all the information is correct, you should accept the form and then provide your
signature. If the information in incorrect, you should decline the form and we will
send it back to your representative to make updates.

You representative submits and pays for your online form (for
new cases)
Once you review and sign your form, your representative will submit Form G-28 along
with your form, and pay the fee for your form (if there is one).

Withdrawing a Form G-28
An attorney or accredited representative or the applicant, petitioner, requestor, beneficiary or
derivative, or respondent may withdraw Form G-28 at any time by submitting written notice of
withdrawal to DHS, or by submitting a new Form G-28. The applicant, petitioner, requestor,
beneficiary or derivative, or respondent will be treated as unrepresented unless a new Form G-28 is
submitted.
