JFK seems to be the only place that consistently gives the temp EAD.

I remember someone here asking for it in Atlanta and they got it. A lot do not, even if they ask.

Hesham arrived at JFK on October 6 (we heard it's the only place giving Temp EAD) and was not given one. :( He asked the IO and was flatly ignored and told to MOVE ON. He was too nervous to stand his ground and has regretted it ever since... going on 3 months of SHEER BOREDOM and FRUSTRATION... Guess the bottom line is either refuse to leave until you get an explanation, or plan to wait and wait and wait... But never count on getting it....

Good luck!

yep, the IOs in JFK are incredibly rude. I had to ask and insist as well.

the female IO gave me SH!T because I don't have an engagement ring. she said "but your fiance is a phd chemist, you need to get at least 1.5 carat or this is no real engagement"

JFK is the only POE that routinely issues/stamps the temp. EAD. Unless you've got a job already lined up - the Temp EAD is of little use/value (for most folks) so it would not likely be worth any extra costs incurred by making JFK your entry point (if another POE would make better sense/be cheaper). :thumbs:

Why are people in these positions so incredibly ignorant (not to mention RUDE)? Reminds me of the time I called the IRS line for expatriates and asked for some tax information. When I gave the woman on the line my address, she asked for the state. I said: no, I'm in Thailand and she said tersely: "Yes, but I need to know the STATE." When I repeated "I'm calling from Thailand, the country" she said: "Oh, so you're calling from overseas?" No joke.
