My L2 visa is valid till 17-Feb-2014 and same is the expiry date for my EAD L2. Can I go to India on vacation and resume my job.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Strongsville, OH

Can I use the same EAD to join back my job. The EAD says "Not valid for reentry to US" but since my L2 visa is valid, I can go and come back?
