EAD Clarification

Hello All.

Fantastic website!

My question is related to receiving an EAD on a K1 visa.

I have read, if you go through JFK you can get it. I have read you can't at all. I have read at any POE you can receive it. I have read you need to make an appointment with service center.

Please, someone can set me straight. Can I get an EAD on my K1 visa or not? Am I able to enter the USA and work?

Thank You.

Matt.

For a K-1 entrant to be authorized to work, they must file their AOS (for their PR/Green Card) and EAD, once married. EAD will take anywhere from 30-90 days (usually somewhere in between). They will not be authorized to work until the EAD is issued (or their PR/Green Card is issued; whichever comes first).

This 'temporary EAD' you've read about, issued at JFK POE, will no longer allow an employer to hire you. If you want to work, enter the US, get married within 90 days, file AOS and EAD and wait until one or the other is issued. :thumbs:
