Some relief for ‘some’ H4 visa holders

February 14, 2012

While the news hit the stands that Employment Authorization Document will be issued to H4 visa holders, there’s not much to rejoice because the proposition comes with a catch.

Not all H4 visa holders will receive an EAD. It is only for those

  • whose spouses have completed at least six years as H1B  visa holder, and
  • for those whose PERM labor certification has already been filed

But nonetheless this step forward will come to the rescue of many highly qualified immigrants who had been unable to work due to visa restrictions.


While browsing through the ordeals of H4 visa holders I stumbled across a very interesting video yesterday. Meghna Damani in her debut film Hearts Suspended portrays some of the challenges she had faced as an H4 visa holder and interviews other women who shared the same ordeal.

A part of the video was featured at the PBS show To the Contrary and some of the comments given by experts are really surprising. Take a look at it.
