L1-AOS to Greencard

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


In reference to the following link:


"H1B and other work visa notes: There is an USCIS exemption for H1 and L1 visa holders. The way this works is

this: even though you apply for adjustment of status, you keep your H-1 or L-1 status, UNLESS you USE a

marriage-based EAD card. What this means in real terms is that IF you do NOT use a marriage-based EAD

you are still H1 or L1 and CAN travel outside the US withOUT having advance parole. Of course, you would still

have to work for the H1 or L1 employer in this situation."

...since I am on an L1-B, is it advisable to NOT apply for an EAD card if I would like to travel? My visa expires in November of this year. I am not planning on leaving my employer...unless is it very easy to get AP?

in this case, I wouldn't get an EAD card? Just my permanent resident card? I should be safe here by November of this year, correct?

Sorry I am just getting paronoid.

Thanks for your patience!
