F1 or H4 for better jobs


Recommended Posts



I am on F1 and I am doing my Masters in Charlotte. This is my last semester and I have started applying for jobs. My husband has an approved I-140. Now with all this new H4-EAD rule coming up, I am very much confused about the visa status I should have. Is it better to be on F1 and work on OPT or to change my status to H4 and apply for H4-EAD? Please suggest me regarding this. Would you also please let me know all the advantages and disadvantages of H4-EAD?


Thanks in Advance!
