EAD Approval for H-4 Visa Holder

Pandev Law recently acquired employment authorization for an H-4 visa holder. An H-4 visa holder is the dependent – spouse or child under 21 – of an H-1B visa recipient. Our team is so excited for our client, who is now eligible to work in the USA.

If you are interested in learning more about the employment-based USA visa process in general or about the H visa category, please refer to our explanation of the H-1B visa category or our article describing the H-4 visa EAD requirements.

What is an H-4 visa?

The H-4 visa is granted to the spouses, children under the age of 21, and other dependents of H visa holders. An H-4 visa allows dependent family member to accompany an H visa applicant to the United States. H visa holders whose dependent family members can apply for an H-4 visa include: H-1B, H-2A, H-2B, and H-3 visa holders.
