EAD Expedite for Healthcare Workers

This week, the USCIS Public Engagement office announced that it will immediately begin to expedite the issuance of EAD’s for healthcare workers if:

  • You have a pending Employment Authorization Document (EAD) renewal application ; and 
  • Your EAD is expiring within 30 days or less, or has already expired: 

Please call the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283  to request expedited processing of your EAD renewal application. If your EAD renewal is pending with our office, please contact your assigned case manager who will advise.  Given that there is already in place an automatic extension for 485 based EAD cards, it appears that this announcement will have limited impact but, we appreciate the effort being made by the USCIS.
