What is an EAD Card?

An Employee Authorization Document, or EAD Card, gives a person from another country legal authorization to work in the United States. Those who might need to obtain EAD cards include refugees, U non-immigrants, and those seeking asylum from other countries.

If an individual has a pending application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal (form I-589), or to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status (form I-485), he or she may also need to apply for an EAD card.

Immigration Forms

What are Immigration Forms?

Immigration forms allow residents of other countries to apply to immigrate legally to the United States for work and/or permanent residence. There are hundreds of different forms available to applicants, so understanding which forms are for which circumstances can get confusing. All forms are available for free through the offices or websites of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or the U.S. State Department. Applicants can also obtain forms at overseas consulates, download them from the site of the relevant U.S. government agency, or call 800-870-3676.

Applicants who plan to visit the local USCIS office should plan ahead. These offices often have long lines, so USCIS has established an "InfoPass" program that allows visitors to make appointments before going to the office. Some offices will take walk-ins, but this is unlikely. When scheduling an appointment, make sure to use a compu

Visa Bulletin

  • 8 min read

What Is a Visa Bulletin?

A visa bulletin is a table that shows how long certain groups of people have waited to be approved for a visa. Visa bulletins can also be used to tell if you are eligible to apply for a visa. The U.S. government limits how many immigrants come into the country per year. This applies to both employer-sponsored and family sponsored applicants. These limitations create a backlog.

The Department of State (DOS) releases a visa bulletin every month. The main focus is to describe how many immigrant visas are available. Immigration is tightly regulated. The government caps the number of foreign nationals allowed in the country per year. Every immigrant who wants to live in the U.S. needs their own personal immigrant visa number.

Visas can be acquired at a U.S. Co
