Submitted expedited EAD request
 
Hey guys,

Just wanted to make a note here that I've expedited my EAD production.

My situation is that my UK company is setting up a US branch that I'm heading up, however until all of my papers come through all I'm doing presently is talking to people, setting up connections and gauging interest in our work from other companies. Until the EAD comes through I can't really go any further. Presently we've been talking to several big companies in North America, and to proceed further we need to speed up the EAD so that I can start employment for the US branch. Unfortunately the contracts that we may potentially get for one in particular is time critical.

Anyone got any experience doing this?

I believe Tom169 did?

I'm sure he'll chime in shortly with some useful info :)

Edit - link to his thread http://britishexpats.com/forum/marri...cation-892309/

I recommend getting in touch with your local Congress person. The USCIS have a phone number only for them so they can get right into the system.

Make sure you have a job offer on letterhead paper. Ensure it shows your name, job title and salary.

Glad to see that you employment issue has been corrected from what you told us yesterday. So hopefully you can stop starving come next payday :rofl:

What post?

My last post was about Selective Service, and the one before that was about Biometrics?

BigBoss my sincere apologies. I got your EAD problem confused with another poster, CoachMB, who posted yesterday about his EAD is in its 104th day of waiting.

I will go and hide under the bed for now.

Got a notification this morning saying the following;

On July 28, 2017, your request to have your case expedited, referral number XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, was completed.

Any idea what this means?

Good things I hope :thumbsup:

Decided to give them a call - they want my biometrics first. I'm out of state at the minute and back next week so I'm pretty sure the biometrics letter will be there. It should have been sent out last week according to a Tier 2 IO at USCIS. So I'll do a walk in biometrics appointment upon my return then try again with the expedite.

Out of curiosity - how did you go about this, same method as Tom?

I just called the USCIS customer service number, said I wanted to expedite my EAD - the guy took my details, asked me under what category I would like to expedite (I chose loss of finances to company or person) - and that was it.

Good to know, thanks!

So it would appear that they were finally getting around to your original EAD petition but your request to expedite caught them at that very moment.

Here's hoping that after biometrics you are fast tracked rather than put back into the normal queue.

Gonna attempt a biometrics walk in today, wonder what will happen after that with the EAD expedite?
