AP and EAD renewal


Recommended Posts

Can somebody confirm this:

the trick is that you have to be on EAD once you use your AP for travel and return back. In that case, You cannot use h1 to work!

You have to update the I-9 form and keep renewing your EAD even if you have valid H1 remaining!

Plenty of discussions about this in this forum. People have referred to "Cronin Memo" saying it allows to be back on H1B status even though you enter using AP. Just Google it. Most of the conclusions stands that you are now in "Paroled" status and hence no longer in H1B as your I-94 also would say "Paroled" which was ultimately reflects your status.
