No, H-4 spouses are NOT about to get EADs


Recommended Posts

Contrary to what has been reported in the media, there is no reason to believe that certain H-4 spouses are about to become eligible for employment authorization documents (EADs). See NewsFlash! here. We'll post a more detailed explanation of what the White House proposal may mean, soon. But, suffice to say, you should not believe everything you see on the internet (unless you read it on MurthyDotCom!)

Just looked at the official statement from the white house .gov website. It clearly mentions that the givernment is thinking of publishing this proposed rule. It did mention that this rule has been proposed befiore and they are thinking of publishing it.


Sounds like a good news to me.


Attracting the World’s Best and Brightest: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will soon publish several proposed rules that will make the United States more attractive to talented foreign entrepreneurs and other high-skill immigrants who will contribute substantially to the U.S. economy, create jobs, and enhance American innovative competitiveness.  These proposed regulations include rules authorizing employment for spouses of certain high-skill workers on H-1B visas, as well as enhancing opportunities for outstanding professors and researchers. These measures build on continuing DHS efforts to streamline, eliminate inefficiency, and increase the transparency of the existing immigration system, such as by the launch of Entrepreneur Pathways, an online resource center that gives immigrant entrepreneurs an intuitive way to navigate opportunities to start and grow a business in the United States.
