H4 Visas for Dependents of H1 Visa and the Benefits They Provide

This is an update about EAD for H4 holders. These H4 Visas are given to those people who are supported the H1 Visa Holders. Their dependents are mostly family membersas well as of spouses of H1 Visa Holders. The ‘Department of Homeland Security’ had updated what is published on the “H4 Employment Authorization”documentation. The dependents of these H1 Visa Holders are not allowable for work if an US citizen can benefit from this position and they will be hired instead of the H4 Visa Holder.

Final decision:

The decision that is made on work of these H4 Visa holders will be publicised at the beginning of 2019 and prior to this, public opinions will be taken into consideration. The H4 Visa holders can apply for Employment Authorization Department (EAD) only when their spouses fulfil the following requirements:

  • Their H4 Visa needs to be valid for up to the current year
  • Their H4 Visa must be extended past the 6-year period

H4 EAD Benefits:

Beside the benefit of work, more benefits are added to the H4 Visa Holders and with the Employment Authority Department. These benefits:

  • Social security number will be assigned
  • There are also no restrictions for employment
  • No Minimum wage scales

Processing Time:

If the H4 Visa holders are joining a company for work and the Employment Authorization Document changes have been made, it might be needed and the Visa holder might need to know how long the processing time and need to have the answer, there it’s no fixed time. It is totally dependent on the official’s centre. 90 days of time is estimated by officials of the service centre for the Visa holders from the date of submitting all documents, but it really is dependent on the speed of the work.
