View Full Version : EAD expired long back - can I renew from India ?

All gurus
Here is my situation.
I was in EAD / AP and due to some family reason moved back to India in 2008.
Later EAD was expired and I never renewed it.
Now (after almost 6 years) I am thinking of moving back to US.
In the meantime visited US 4-5 times in B1 Visa and came back on time.
I have an approved 140 which is NOT withdrawn.
And obviously expired EAD.
1. Is it possible to renew my Old EAD from india?
2. What would be best option (in terms of immigration) to move back ?

Thanks in advance

Is your I 485 Case still valid ?
EAD Renewal depends on your I 485 case.
The case should be pending.

Your case might be deemed as abandoned.If you have,I 140 approval notice,than porting might be possible.

1) Get H1B or L1 visa
2) Start your GC Process ,since your case is Aug 2002 ,eb 3 or eb 2 might not matter,if priority date gets ported

Please consult a Immigration attorney
