EAD after NIW

Recommended Posts


I got my National Interest Waiver (NIW) approved and want to know if I can get EAD based on that. I am on H1-B visa currently.

Any advice would be helpful.

You can only get an EAD if you have filed an I-485, which in turn requires the PD to be current. An approved I-140 (NIW or not) doesn't give you rights to an EAD.
