Hi All, :help:

I'm sure people have asked this many times before but can anyone give advise when I've had my K-1 visa approved how I can expedite the proceeding on get permission to work?

The quicker you get married and file for AOS and EAD, the quicker you will get permission to work.

You can enter the US through JFK airport, they issue temp work stamps for K1 visas, meaning, you will be able to accept employment for the 90 days your K1 is valid upon entry. Then get married asap and file for AOS along with EAD. Usually you will receive the EAD card within 90 days after filing and with a little bit of luck you won't have to stop working at all or will only have to take a short break from the time your K1 expires until you receive EAD.

That's what I was going to say.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

True but unfortunately coming from Canada, the JFK option will be quite difficult since almost all flights from Canada into the USA are pre-cleared before departure.....


YMMV
