A work permit, also known as an EAD (or Employment Authorization Document), is a document that authorizes a non-citizen of the United States to work and reside within the United States without first obtaining citizenship. Work permits do not affect an alien’s residential status, and only allow a holder to stay in the country for as long as the EAD remains valid.
Qualifying aliens include those who are “lawful permanent residents” (as defined by Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations), those admitted into the country as a legal temporary resident with previous employment authorization, those admitted as a parent or dependent child of a legal permanent resident, and the fiancé(e)s of non-immigrant U.S. citizens.
