Employment Authorization at the border?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knows if any of the POE between AB or BC are issuing Employment Authorization stamp at the border. Also, which crossing would you recommend?

Thanks all

Senka

The only place I have heard that gives the temp EAD stamp with any regularity is the JFK airport.

You have to decide if getting the temp EAD (and the potential problems that could arise if you don't receive your EAD before the temp one is invalid) is within your best interests or not.

One can always ask, and they can always say no!! lol


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

When I had my interview I asked about this before I left.

He told me that they can't do this with K1 visas. I told him that I read about it online, but he said there is no way they can give them out with K1's at the POE. *shrug*

He told me that when I go to apply for my AOS I can get employment authorization.

Goodluck! Be sure to let us know if you do indeed get one =)
