EAD renewal query

Recommended Posts


Recently, H1B and my H4 petition got approved and we have I94 till December 2022. But my passport is expiring in March 2021. So, now if I apply for H4 EAD renewal, will I get the EAD till Dec 2022 or till Passport expiration date. Is passport only for the Identity verification? 

Thank you,

Typically an H4EAD's validity will match the H4 I-94 (whether from USCIS or CBP).   When a person travels outside the U.S. and reenters, if the passport validity is shorter than the I-797 validity, CBP will issue the I-94 for the duration of the passport validity.
