  • what does usually come first?ead (employment card)or interview letter?

    guys,i want to know what your experiences are. i already got my interview letter but no ead yet. I had my biometrics done on the 13th of july. im scheduled for interview before the end of august. when can i possibly get my ead and is this normal il first before ead?

    It is not uncommon to get your IL before your EAD. That was the case with me and many other people.

      It can be either ways, don't worry about it. I received my EAD before the IL but there are tons of cases where IL arrives before. Don't think about it much and prepare for the interview. Good luck!
