Is premium processing available for H4-EAD (Work Authorization) applications? Also, if I apply for work authorization, can I step out of the country and come back with no impact to work authorization processing timeline? Thank you
There is no no premium processing available yet for H4 EAD.
And it seems as long as you have valid H4 and short periods of stay abroad- it should be okay for the EAD to process. This is however never a guarantee.
