work permission - EAD? AOS?

Hey guys!

I have a question regarding the work permission.

I was reading a lot of different stuff in the forums about it.

I will be coming to the U.S. with a K1 visa.

Do I get a work permission directly at the boarder?

If not do I have to apply for an EAD card while I am sending in the papers for AOS?

How long does it will take until I get the EAD card and how long is it valid?

Does it mean that I can not work for the first few months while I am in the U.S.?

Thanks for the answers.

JFK seems to stamp this in your passport - however, from the discussions I have seen here (I9/EAD/Stamp) - it's not valid for K-1's to use for work.

If not do I have to apply for an EAD card while I am sending in the papers for AOS?

Yes - this is the standard way to go.

How long does it will take until I get the EAD card and how long is it valid?

Varies - if they do not respond in 90 days - you can request an expedited one. Ours took 2 months - however, the GC came two days later.

Does it mean that I can not work for the first few months while I am in the U.S.?

Correct.

Thanks for the answers.

My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Hi Adam,

No you won't get a work permission at the boarder when you are going to come to the US

If not do I have to apply for an EAD card while I am sending in the papers for AOS?

Yes, you have to apply for an EAD card

How long does it will take until I get the EAD card and how long is it valid?

According differents timelines, it takes about 2 or 3 months

Does it mean that I can not work for the first few months while I am in the U.S.?

Unfortunately, yes ...

Thanks for the answers.
