Can someone please share how easy or difficult it is to get a job with EAD on an H4 visa? Also how difficult is getting the EAD itself? Apologies if it's a naive question. I'm not too familiar with the US visa scene. Asking genuinely for a friend 😀

If you have the right skills .. getting job on EAD is cakewalk

like

EAD is better than visa in many ways. But getting H4 EAD takes time. The H1 spouse should first get i140. There are also delays in extending. But this is getting better.

like

Getting job is dependent on skills, not on status. H4 EAD has no restrictions so they can do literally any job, that makes the search broad and easy. Getting EAD is the tough part these days. I140 takes about 12-18 months since GC initiation, then EAD application processing takes about 4-12 months recently, which is ridiculous.

Thank you so much!
