To all people getting laid off: always apply for unemployment benefits within 7 days of getting laid off. Even if you won’t need it, it’s good to have an option to stay afloat.

Dear fellow immigrant fishes! I just got a copy of i765 approval. It says it’s valid until 8/4/2024. Does this mean I don’t need work visa anymore to work?
I just got laid off, and am waiting for my i485 to get approved, and I don’t have advance parole yet.
So if this means I don’t need my new employer to file O1 visa for me, it would really help A LOT 🥹!!
