Hi all,

My spouse is a H1B holder with an approved I-140, and I am contemplating moving to the US on a H4 visa, but I do not have a very good sense for whether startups in the Bay Area are open to hiring candidates on a H4 EAD? Would anyone be able to share their experiences with exploring opportunities with startups on a H4 EAD?

Thanks a lot for your inputs here!

  • Starups care only on skills, experience and expertise. In fact, EAD is much better to reduce costs and paper work

      Not true. Having EAD makes a big difference in most companies. Definitely a must for contractor jobs.

      Oh yeah you're right, I missed the "moving to the US" part.

    Startups don’t ask what type of EAD you have, only the question “do you need visa sponsorship?” And all you need to answer is no and they’ll move on.

    With the current uncertainty over h4 EAD some companies are hesitant to hire H4 EADs.
