I-485 EAD. Is working remote for the same employer possible?

Recommended Posts


I have been with the same employer for 12 years now and requested to go remote (work from home in a different city) for various reasons (health of a family member). I requested my manager and he is following up with Legal/HR and his manager.

My question --> Does USCIS or any immigration related rule require a non-immigrant to live/work in the same city (Labor, I140 and H1B's were file in this city) while waiting on the green card?

Or is this purely down to employer to allow the employee to work from remote location?

Thanks in advance,

They can file an amended H1 letting you work from home. The GC is for a future job in theory and as long as you intend to take it up in the original location on approval, you should be OK. Keep a lawyer onboard to cover your bases and answer any queries involved.
