So last night I checked my email and *confoundment* there was a message from the USCIS. My EAD (Employment Authorisation) has been approved! Jeez I could have had a baby in the time it took them to look at my paperwork!
I’d looked at my online status earlier in the day and noticed that my file had been “touched” but the status message was unchanged. Who knows if they finally just decided to look at it, or whether my request for a status report tipped the balance?
Hopefully the card will arrive in the post shortly. Mmmm can’t wait to see the delightful looking photo I submitted back in December last year. Fingers crossed it’s got the right name on it too.
I’m now legally allowed to work for a full year and will have to apply for a renewal 3 months before it runs out, assuming some small miracle doesn’t happen and my Adjustment of Status is still pending.
Pulled out the voddy last night for a celebratory tipple.
