    Hi,

    I am confused as to what is the rule under this situation:

    >> Suppose, I have valid H4 visa and my spouse has valid H1B visa. I have got my H4 EAD approval till, let's say October 2016. Now if I need to leave USA and travel abroad for a month or two and again return to USA within this period, will I need to file for a new EAD / renew my current EAD? Or I can work with my current, approved EAD till October 2016 and when it is expiring I will file again for a renewal, as according to the rule?

    Previously I had a L2 EAD and I had heard that if you traveled outside USA during your approved period, you had to file for a new/renewal EAD once you return. The current EAD becomes invalid. That is why I am confused whether this rule applies for the new H4 EAD as well.

    -Thanks

    You do not have to re-file if you leave the country. Your EAD will remain valid.
