5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

coming Monday we finally have our interview.

It is my understanding that I have to bring and hand-back the EAD, is this correct?

If so how do I prove my elgibility to work while I am waiting for the GC?

Cheers

Tim

They might let you keep the EAD. If they take it, then there will be around a week lag before you get your GC. Usually an employer has a window between hiring and verifying status, so if you happen to get a job and start work in those 10 days, then you'd explain the situation.

The IO did not ask for my EAD.

When she told us the GC process woudl take another 30 to 90 days I confirmed with her that I can apply for work with the EAD in the meantime.
