USCIS Extends Validity of Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) for Some Foreign Nationals

VisaMadeEZ, an immigration law firm that specializes in helping healthcare organizations hire international nurses, is excited to share the latest news from USCIS regarding the extension of Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) for some foreign nationals.

On September 21, USCIS announced that it would extend the validity of some EADs for up to two years. This extension applies to EADs with the following categories: A03, A05, A07, A08, A10, C08, C09, C10, C16, C20, C22, C24, C31, and A12 or C19. It is important to note that this extension only applies to EADs that have an expiration date between December 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022.

This extension will be automatic, and USCIS will send out new EADs as the old ones expire. This means that foreign nationals with EADs in these categories will not need to file any additional paperwork to receive the extension.

This news is especially significant for healthcare organizations that rely on foreign national nurses to fill staffing needs. With the ongoing nursing shortage in the United States, this extension will provide some relief to those organizations struggling to fill roles.

At VisaMadeEZ, we understand the importance of having a full staff of qualified nurses, and we are constantly striving to help our clients navigate the complicated immigration process. Our team of experienced immigration attorneys is here to assist healthcare organizations in hiring international nurses and ensuring that they are fully authorized to work in the United States.

We encourage healthcare organizations to take advantage of this extension and to explore their options for hiring foreign national nurses. With the help of VisaMadeEZ, the process can be streamlined and stress-free. We offer a wide range of services, including green card sponsorship, H-1B visa sponsorship, and more.

In conclusion, this news from USCIS is a positive development for healthcare organizations and foreign national nurses alike. It is an excellent opportunity to fill staffing needs and provide the best possible care to patients. At VisaMadeEZ, we are committed to helping healthcare organizations achieve their goals and ensuring that they have the qualified staff they need to succeed.
