Clarification required regarding EAD

Recommended Posts


My wife is having L2 visa and traveling to the US in May on a long term assignment.

I have an L2 with me and plan to travel in couple of months to apply for EAD.

My query is :

1. Do I need to quit my current job in India to apply for EAD when I've travelled to US on L2?

2. If 1 is not the case, then can I apply for EAD and immediately travel back and continue my job (since it takes good 3 months atleast for EAD formalities).

Who is the primary applicant here? Who is the L1 visa holder? How are both of you holding a L2 visa?

You do not have to quit your job,You can file for EAD once your are here but it is not recommended to leave while the application is in process. Once you receive the EAD you can start working using it and quit the job back in india.

Typically people come on long vacation and quit the job after receiving the EAD.

I understand that point but is it mandatory to not leave the US till the EAD is pending is the question.

Heard that this might change the visa number and thus nullify the pending EAD request ??
