Typical time frame for H4 EAD extension

Hi,

Do we know how much time it is taking to get H4 EAD extension approved?

Thanks,

H4 EAD processing time is tracked here daily:

Thanks Anil. So like H1b visas, can H4 EAD person keep working for a few more days if H4 EAD extension is filed and awaiting decision. Is there a grace period for H4 EAD holders?

Also, can we chose which center to send the H4 EAD extension package to?

H4 EAD cannot work if current EAD has expired and new one is pending.

You cannot choose the USCIS service center yourself. H4 EAD application has to be mailed according to H1B receipt number.

Thank you so much Anil. This is helpful information.

Hi @Priyanka11

Yes, you will get a new i94 if you travel to Mexico and come back.

Thanks, Anil for the instant turn around!

Just wanted to check if I go to Mexico and come back on the same day, will I get a new I-94 or do I need to stay in Mexico for a day in order for immigration to update my info.

Priyanka

Hi @Priyanka11

You will get a new i94. No need to stay in Mexico even for 1 minute.
