EAD/AP Combo Card

For some time now my wife’s AP document had been approved, but well over (30) days late of arriving in the mail box. Concerning her EAD, unlike the majority of AOS cases, her EAD was approved first, and then later came the biometrics appointment. Although, there was a concern in not having had receivied the AP, in contrasting it with the EAD, it wasn’t an immediate show stopper to travel now versus her having the opportunity to work lawfully. Please pardon the pun. On a side note, it was always our intent and goal to adhere to the USCIS polices with the utmost compliance! The EAD arrived within (10) standard days, and actually within (8) business days. After opening the Priority Mail envelope we began to study the details subscribed on the card. Much to our astonishment we discovered the card now serves a dual purpose. It also states “Serves as I-512 Advance Parole,” as an added convenience for us, not to mention we were under the impression that our AP had been lost in the snail mail underworld. (Smile) I personally was stunned to witness this since I have not read any information relating to the new EAD/AP combo card. Please allow this post to inform those waiting on your EAD and AP, and I would appreciate any feedback from those that were already aware of this change that evidently went into effect on February 11, 2011. Thanks! You can read more about this amendment at the flowing link: http://immigrationro...og/ead-ap-card/

Was posted in a giant thing on the USCIS website on their main page quite a while ago that they were changing it so they could get the cards out to people faster but also make their system easier for them.

Which photo do they use on the new EAD? Is it the passport style photo submitted with the application, or the biometrics photo? I ask because they used to use the biometrics photo on the old EAD card, so it seems a little odd they would approve the EAD before the biometrics had been done. They used to use the passport style photo on the AP document, though.
