USCIS Extends Employment Authorization Documents Validity for Certain Filing Categories

Posted by Hugo Valverde | Feb 20, 2022 | 0 Comments

The validity length for EAD cards depends on what kind of immigration status a person holds in the United States. For some visa holders, an EAD card only lasts for one year, which means that after about six months of holding it, the renewal process starts again. USCIS has been struggling with an EAD backlog - and now the USCIS is trying to change those statistics with its latest EAD policy alert - which announces that in the interest of “reducing the burden on both the agency and the public,” certain filing categories will be issued initial and renewal EAD cards with up to a  two year validity period.
