  • Stamp in the passport and EAD

    Does any one know if a person get his passport stamped for a green card, does that mean he doesn't need an authorization for employment (EAD card) anymore?

    Thank you for your responses.

            Thank you. So, that means if an I551 is in the passport, person can work without the EAD. Correct?

            Now, the question is how long is the I551 is valid for?

            thank you.

              The I-551 stamp in the passport is the same as having a green card. It shows that you are a lawful permanent resident and free to work. When the passport is stamped, the USCIS will indicate how long it is valid for. Usually it is stamped for a year to hold you over until the green card comes in the mail.

                Once you get the stamp in your passport, they will ask for your EAD back. The stamp says clearly EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZED. A while after receiving the stamp, you will get a plastic card (green card) in the mail.
