L2 EAD renewal from India after extension is stamped


#1

Hi,

I am on L1-A and we were in US for 3yrs and moved back to India for family situations in 2017.

I recently came back to US and got my L1 A extension approved and my wife is still in India and she got her L2 stamping done a week ago.

Her previous i94 is valid her Nov 2018 and she had her EAD as well. Our currrent visa is valid until 2020 and planning to bring her in another 2 months. Can i initiate her L2 EAD renewal as we have valid VISA and i94 number or does she needs to be physically in US for applying EAD renewal ?

.
Her I-94 has no meaning once she has left United States. Another valid I-94 comes into picture when she legally enters back into US.

While she is outside United Status, she has NO STATUS. For L2 EAD, she MUST be on L2 Visa when she is filing petition.
