My Passport and EAD card was stolen. I am a foreign studnet and I am yet to start work and I have lost the card after travelling overseas. Can I apply online for a replacement EAD card or do I have to be physically presnet in the USA
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, I did check with my employers lawyer to ask if i can start work with a Scan copy of teh card that I have.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: The employers lawyer told me that a replacement card will take 60 days, but the company can onboard me on the basis of a a reciept of the application for a replacement card. The card was lost in France so the Police report is in French!

At this time you cannot file for EAD replacement online. You can however file by mail. For more information, click here.

Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Philips. Thank you for your response. I have seen the link. Can I download the form and fill it up and ship it from outside the USA?
Since I lost my passport too, I will need a new passport and fresh Visa to enter the US. Hence if the EAD replacement can go independently it would be ideal.
So the question is can I ship the form overseas or am I supposed to be physically in the USA to apply ?
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 3 months ago.

You can ship the form from overseas.
