OPT EAD:

Optional Practical Training (OPT EAD) is temporary employment that is directly related to an F-1 student’s major area of study. Eligible students can apply to receive up to 12 months of OPT employment authorization (OPT EAD) before completing their academic studies (pre-completion) and/or after completing their academic studies (post-completion). However, all periods of pre-completion OPT EAD will be deducted from the available period of post-completion OPT EAD.

Types of OPT

All OPT must be directly related to your major area of study. If you are an F-1 student, you may be eligible to participate in OPT in two different ways:

  • Pre-completion OPT:  You may apply to participate in pre-completion OPT EAD after you have been lawfully enrolled on a full-time basis for one full academic year at a college, university, conservatory, or seminary that has been certified by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to enroll F-1 students. You do not need to have had F-1 status for the one full academic year; you can satisfy the “one full academic year” requirement even if you had another nonimmigrant status during that time.

If you are authorized to participate in pre-completion OPT EAD, you may work part time (20 hours or less per week) while school is in session. You may work full time when school is not in session.

  • Post-completion OPT:  You may apply to participate in post-completion OPT EAD after completing your studies. If you are authorized for post-completion OPT, you may work part time (20 hours or less per week) or full time.

If you participated in pre-completion OPT EAD, USCIS will deduct that amount of time from your post-completion OPT EAD authorization period. For example, if you participated in 10 months of pre-completion OPT, you would be eligible for only up to 2 months of post-completion OPT.

STEM OPT EAD Extension

If you have earned a degree in certain science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, you may apply for a 24-month extension of your post-completion OPT EAD employment authorization if you:

  • Are an F-1 student who received a STEM degree included on the STEM Designated Degree Program List  (PDF);
  • Are employed by an employer who is enrolled in and is using E-Verify; and
  • Received an initial grant of post-completion OPT EAD employment authorization based on your STEM degree.

If you are interested in applying for a STEM OPT EAD extension, please see our Optional Practical Training Extension for STEM Students (STEM OPT) page for more information.

Applying for OPT EAD

Generally, you must:

  1. Request that your designated school official (DSO) at your academic institution recommend the OPT EAD. Your DSO will make the recommendation by endorsing your Form I‑20, Certification of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, and making the appropriate notation in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).
  2. Properly file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorizationwith USCIS, accompanied by the required fee and the supporting documentation as described in the form instructions.

What is Cap-Gap Extension?

If you are an F-1 student with a timely filed H-1B petition and change of status request, and your F-1 status and employment authorization will expire before the change of status to H-1B occurs (typically Oct. 1), you may be eligible for a cap-gap extension.

Go to  Cap-Gap Extension page for more information.

H4 EAD: Employment Authorization Document (H4 EAD) for H4 dependent visa holders allows H4 visa dependent spouses of H1B nonimmigrants to legally work in the United States. Eligible H4 visa holders may apply for H4 EAD if they want to work in the USA.

H4 EAD – Eligibility Requirements:

Certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants can file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, if the H-1B nonimmigrant:

  • Is the principal beneficiary of an approved Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker; or
  • Has been granted H-1B status under sections 106(a) and (b) of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-first Century Act of 2000 as amended by the 21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act (AC21).

Validity of Employment Authorization for H4 EAD:

You will not be authorized to work until USCIS approves your Form I-765. Once your employment authorization (H4 EAD) is approved, the expiration date on your H4 EAD should be the same date as the expiration date on your most recent Form I-94 indicating your H-4 nonimmigrant status. You are only authorized to work through the expiration date on your H4 EAD. If you are still eligible for employment authorization after that date, you should file for a renewal H4 EAD by submitting another Form I-765. You cannot file for a renewal H4 EAD more than 180 days before your original H4 EAD expires.

The L-2 visa classification is available to the spouse and children of an individual who holds a valid L1A or L1B intra-company transferee status.

Requirements

  • The spouse or parent of the L-2 applicant must continue to hold valid L-1 status.
  • The children are only eligible for L-2 status while under 21 years of age.
  • L-2 status must be separately extended for each family member by filing an application with the USCIS. It is not automatically extended when the L-1 spouse or parent receives an extension of his/her status.
  • A person may be granted L-2 status by: (1) applying for an L-2 visa at a U.S. consulate abroad, and then entering the United States in L-2 status; or (2) by applying for a change of status with the USCIS, if he or she is already in the United States, but holds a different visa classification.
  • Individuals in L-2 status are permitted to apply for the employment authorization document (EAD) that permits them to work for any employer, as long as they remain in valid L-2 status.

Because the L2 visa allows L2 EAD, L2 visa holder spouses are not forced to forego their careers and can work while in the USA.

If you intend to work in the USA on L2 EAD, you should apply for L2 EAD immediately and not wait for some employer to interview you or offer you a job. Additionally, don’t expect that prospective employer to file your L2 EAD. They have nothing do with it, and you have to file it yourself.  Optionally, Prospective employer can also file your L2 EAD on your behalf upon confirmation of the job with them.

Dependent children on L2 EAD visa are NOT eligible to apply for EAD.

See below links for more details on L2 EAD:

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) creates special economic and trade relationships for the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The TN Visa nonimmigrant status allows professionals from Canada and Mexico to work in the U.S.

Mexican professionals must obtain a TN visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy to enter the U.S.

Canadian professionals can request TN visa status at a U.S. port of entry.

Among the types of professionals who are eligible to seek admission as TN Visa nonimmigrants are accountants, engineers, lawyers, pharmacists, scientists, and teachers. You may be eligible for TN Visa nonimmigrant status, if:

  • You are a citizen of Canada or Mexico;
  • Your profession qualifies under the regulations;
  • The position in the United States requires a NAFTA professional;
  • You have a prearranged full-time or part-time job with a U.S. employer (but not self-employment – see documentation required below); and
  • You have the qualifications to practice in the profession in question.

 Eligibility Criteria

 Unlike Mexican citizens, Canadian citizens are generally eligible for admission as nonimmigrants without a visa.  The TN Visa category, a nonimmigrant classification, simply reflects this general exemption from the visa requirement.  NAFTA governs which evidence is required to prove whether a Canadian or Mexican citizen is a professional in a qualifying profession.

Canadian Citizens

If you are a Canadian citizen, then you are not required to apply for a TN visa at a U.S. consulate.

You may establish eligibility for TN Visa classification at the time you seek admission to the United States by presenting required documentation to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at certain CBP-designated U.S. ports of entry or at a designated pre-clearance/pre-flight inspection station. You must provide the following documentation to the CBP officer:

  • Proof of Canadian citizenship;
  • Letter from your prospective employer detailing items such as the professional capacity in which you will work in the United States, the purpose of your employment, your length of stay, and your educational qualifications; and
  • Credentials evaluation (if applicable), together with any applicable fees.

Mexican Citizens

If you are a Mexican citizen, then you are required to obtain a visa to enter the United States as a TN Visa nonimmigrant. You should apply for a TN visa directly at a U.S. embassy or consulate in Mexico.  See the U.S. Department of State webpage, “Mexican and Canadian NAFTA Professional Worker.”

Once you are approved for a TN visa, you may apply for admission at certain CBP-designated U.S. ports of entry or at a designated pre-clearance/pre-flight inspection station.  Please refer to CBP’s website for additional information and requirements for applying for admission to the United States.  If a CBP officer finds you eligible for admission, then you will be admitted as a TN nonimmigrant.

Period of Stay/Extension of Stay:  Initial Period of Stay is up to 3 years for TN Visa holders.

If you wish to remain in the United States beyond your initial period of TN Visa stay without first departing from the United States, you must seek an extension of stay. If you are in the United States, your employer may file Form I-129 on your behalf.

Alternatively, you may depart from the United States before the date your status expires, and then, once abroad, you may apply at a CBP-designated U.S. port of entry or at a designated pre-clearance/pre-flight inspection station using the same application and documentation procedures required at the time of your initial application for admission as a TN Visa nonimmigrant.

Dependents of TN Visa Nonimmigrants

Any accompanying or “following to join” spouse and children under the age of 21 may be eligible for TD nonimmigrant status.  Spouses and children are:

  • Not permitted to work while in the United States, but they are permitted to study.
  • Granted TD status for no longer than the period of time granted to the principal TN nonimmigrant.

 

Form I-9 

When completing Section 1 of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, an employee in TN Visa status should select “An alien authorized to work” and enter the admission number and expiration date of their status as indicated on Form I-94/Form I-94A, Arrival/Departure Record. The employee’s unexpired Form I-94 together with their unexpired foreign passport is acceptable as a List A document for Form I-9.

In the alternative, employees in TN Visa status may present a List B document with a List C document.  In this case, a Form I-94/I-94A indicating admission in TN Visa status would be acceptable as a List C#8 document.
