Good Day

 

I am the beneficiary and my interview is coming up at the consulate in my country. We didn't choose to adjust status but I stayed in my country and did consular filing. When I come to the US; how soon will I be able to work? Or apply for work.

Do I have to wait on them to send me the green card and a work permit ? Or as soon as I get my immigrant passport I can start looking for work?

 

I already work for a US company that has a branch in my country too.

As you are coming on a spouse visa you will get a stamp in your passport when you arrive this will be your GC til you get the physical one. You just need your SSN and then you can work right away.
