How to Renew a Work Permit
In the United States, a work permit is either a work visa or an employment authorization document (EAD) that allows non citizens and non Green Card Holders (permanent residents) to work temporarily in the United States. EADs may be issued for a variety of immigrant statuses, and there are over 60 different types of work visa, most of which are renewable one or two times. To ensure you can continue to work in the United States, you should be sure to start the renewal process early, to discuss with your employer the steps that need to be taken, and to carefully fill out the appropriate forms and supply the correct documentation.
