The new Form I-9 is available in English and Spanish. USCIS clarified that Spanish I-9 is available for completion only by Puerto Rico employers. All employers may continue to use the Spanish form for reference, but the English version must be completed.  In addition, USCIS has published a Handbook for Employers to provide guidance for completing the new Form I-9.

USCIS requires employers to use the new Form I-9 on May 7, 2013, but it may also be used immediately. USCIS will accept prior versions of Form I-9, "(Rev. 08/07/09) Y" and "(Rev. 02/02/09) N", until May 7, 2013.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the new Form I-9.
