NIW EAD

Recommended Posts

HI All,

 

I am a physician Indian Nationality applying for Green card under NIW . How long will it take to get an EAD if I apply for both I 140 and I 485 at atime? Untill I get the EAD should I be working on H1? Thanks in advance

No one on a forum can reliable predict a time frame - or even if NIW will be granted. What does your attorney say?  If you don't have an attorney, get one.

If the dates need to be current with NIW too- then whats the advantage of NIW over Labor route? Because, in either routes - the dates need to be current.

NIW generally does not need to be sponsored by an employer; and, there is no requirement to obtain a labor certification (which means no need to recruit for the position, etc.) There are other potential benefits of the NIW vs. standard EB2, but these generally do not apply for physicians.
