Hello!

My fiance and I are applying for a K1 visa. I have heard that when he arrives at the airport he should receive a temporary work permit.

I'm just wondering if someone can tell me more about this. How long does the permit last?

What do we need to do to ensure that my fiance can work when he arrives in the US? What do I need to do to ensure that he will continue to be able to work?

Thanks so much!

after your fiancee recieves the visa and enters the u.s you file for adjustment of status . the new fee includes the work permit and advance parole wich lets your fiancee leave the u.s while she awaits her green card.

The temporary EAD stamp is only available when arriving at JFK airport. It's good for 90 days only but you must first apply for and receive a SSN. For most, it's useless. After marriage, you apply for AOS, EAD and AP. (Check the immigration dictionary on the main forums page.)

If it's not a major inconvenience for your fiance to go through JFK and get the temp stamp, it can come in handy IF he is able to get his social security card within a few weeks of his arrival. Even if he has to stop working at the end of the 90 days, it's still a good opportunity to save up some money.

Thanks!

What is the process for applying for and receiving a SSN? Do you know how long it usually takes? Is there any way that we could make it so that the temporary EAD stamp isn't useless? Does everyone that goes through JFK get it?

Also, do you know how long it takes on average after applying for the EAD to receive it?

Thanks for all your help!

Do you know how we would be able to get his social security card within a few weeks?

Thanks for the help!
