EAD Production Takes Additional 1-2 Weeks


The USCIS Ombudsman Office has confirmed that it will take about one to two weeks for USCIS to produce and deliver the physical Employment Authorization Document (EAD) to the applicant, after the case is approved. This is in addition to the regular or premium processing time. The 30-day premium processing schedule does not include the document production time. Hence, it could potentially take up to 45 days for an applicant to actually receive his/her EAD card, even if he or she pays the additional premium fee of $1,500. Applicants including F-1 students should understand this when they make their employment plans.
