Using EAD when H1 is still active. What happens to H1B


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have H1b & EAD from Company A and I am planning to join Company B using my EAD.

Does using my EAD automatically de-activate my H1B status?

What happens if I do not get EAD extension or the EAD extension is rejected for some reason in the next couple of years? In that event of EAD not getting approved/rejected, what are my chances of getting back to H1 Status and what is the process for that? I hope I still count towards the H1 Cap exempt.

I wanted to be 100% sure before moving to the new company using my EAD and NOT H1B.

Any help here is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
