  • L2 ead application

    Hi everyone,
    I have an urgent question.
    my wife currently in the US and is on an l1-b which is valid until October 2022.
    i had applied for an l2 visa and was in the US in March 2020 for a few days after which I left the country.
    i have an i-94 which is valid until October 2022.
    i now have to apply for my ead.
    ny question is that do I need to come to the US to apply for an ead or can I wife file from there?
    note that I have a valid b1/b2 and had an l1-a earlier so I don’t think I’ll have to go through biometrics again.

    please help!

    If you are not in USA right now, then that I94 is not valid anymore.

    Yes, you need a valid I94 to apply for EAD.

      Thank you Libra_14! Quick follow up question, I know friends who left the US right after filing for the EAD.
      And when I download My latest I-94, it says valid until October 2022.
      just double checking as it’s a hassle to travel given the covid situation.

        You need a valid I94 to apply for EAD, after application is submitted you can leave USA.

        I94 is to note your entry & departure date, at times VO can re-use the same I94, but it depends on him & it is decided at the time of your next entry.
        As soon as you leave USA, that I94 is not valid anymore (specially to apply for EAD).
