As far as I know, the spouse needs an EAD document to work in the US. You can get an EAD document once the H1 sponsoring company has filed for your green card. Before getting the EAD, your spouse cannot work on H4 visa.

Generally speaking, spouses cannot work on H4

It depends. (Like most of immigration questions). Long story short, H4 cannot get EAD, unless the beneficiary (your spouse) already had an EAD before (pe if switching from L2 to H4). In that case, the right to work remain in place. Your spouse would still need to apply for it tho.

Hi! I’m an Indian currently on H1B in US. I got my I-140 approved for the next 3 years and need to step outside the country to get my visa stamped. I’m thinking of visiting India in December and using the drop box feature to get my visa stamped. Any intel on how long does drop box is currently taking to send the passport with visa stamped? I’m hoping to be in india for 2 to 3 weeks and unsure if I would get my visa stamped by then. Is there a source where I can see processing times for drop b?
