He can be in the US in one status only. So he'll be in E-3D status until the E-3 is approved. He can continue to use his EAD until the E-3 is approved.

Yes and no. If he changes status within the US, he'll be in E-3 status from the moment the E-3 is approved. However, if he leaves the US for any reason whatsoever he must then go to a US Consulate abroad to get a new visa in his passport - so he will be landlocked until then. He is able to live and work in the US only so long as he doesn't leave the US - and at that point, he must get a new visa or he has no way to return to the US.

... can he not go to Canada?
Yes, but other countries, such as Canada, are not obligated to process the E-3 so there's no guarantee going to Canada will be successful. Ultimately, it may be easier to go to Australia.


Quote:
... if he has to go to consulate outside USA is there any time constraint he has to get all this process done?
I don't believe so, no. He need not go to a US Consulate until such time as he intends to travel outside the US.


Quote:
... if he has to go out of the country for E3 stamping and for some reason he did not get E3...
To my knowledge, his E-3D will still be valid even if his E-3 is denied. When he returns to the US, he must make sure the CBP officer admits him as an E-3D.


Quote:
... can he apply new E3D on my current E3 basis...
Yes, but he shouldn't need to.


Quote:
... does he have to apply new EAD?
Yes, but he shouldn't need to. So long as his E-3D status is valid, his EAD is valid.

Hi!

Anyone recently renewed their EAD? I see the fee has increased since my last renewal to $410 but it also says you must pay $85 for biometrics. I have never had to have a biometrics test or pay a fee for this the last 3 times ive renewed. Do you think I need to send a payment of $495 with my renewal application or just pay the $410?
