James just got an email notifying him that his Employment Authorization has been approved! That went really fast. The timeline was as follows:
- June 16 – Mailed application
- July 10 – Received notification of receipt (which stated they had received the application on June 29 – or July 8 if you believe the website instead) which stated that processing would take 30-90 days
- August 6 – Received notice of approval (via email)
Ironically, the USCIS website states that they are currently processing EAD applications received on February 1. Which renders the USCIS processing times table pretty much useless.
Oh well. We’re pretty excited! And have renewed faith in the timeliness of the USCIS.
