H4 visa holders are not allowed to legally work. H4 is a derivative of an H1 visa. H4 visa holders are allowed entry to US because they are dependents of H1 visa holder. H4 visa holders are not eligible for Social Security Number. H4 visa holder may apply EAD only if filed concurrently with the principal's (H1 Visa holder) I-140 petition OR if principal's I-140 petition is pending or approved.

Unfortunately, H4 visa holders are not allowed to work here in the United States. It is the regulation when you applied for this type of visa. If you are already on H4, you can join to our group at facebook "H4 WORLD - ONLINE COMMUNITY", and share your thoughts. Thanks.

Difficult - the H4 holder would have to be needed and benefit the US economy in his/her own right.

Yes, an H4 visa holder can get an H1B through teaching job. The H4 visa holder simply needs to get a job with a school that is willing to file the sponsorship.

People must have the documentations stamped in their home country. Therefore to renew an H4 Visa the person must return to the country of origin. An extension may be filed from the host country.

Yes, you can study full time on H4 visa. You may also be eligible for in-state tuition too if you have lived in that state with your husband for more than year.

The person who doesnt attend school needs to marry the F1 holder before school term begins. Marrying an H1 work visa holder is fine as long as you are able to obtain a h4 dependent visa from which you cant work.

What is your question? You need to give more details.

H1B visas last 3 years. You can only have two and then you have to apply for a Green Card or return to your home country. Your wife and child can get H4 visas if you have a H1. Your wife would not be able to work legally on an H4 but your child can attend school. You can get a driver's license with an HI. You can only legally work for the company named on the H1B visa and no other company.

Without any work experience you will not be able to find a legitimate company to sponsor you for an H1 visa so almost impossible. H1B visa has few requirements that includes bachelor degree, work experience. Sponsor employer should show to US department you are eligible for the work and you have required skill sets.

The only way to earn money for expenses is to work under the table. There are individuals and companies that will hire you and pay you cash.

To get a work visa you will need a work permit. When you get the work visa it will act as your entry visa to the country. So you will not need a separate visit visa.

No. You cannot get USA work visa from Dubai even though you have been in Dubai on work visa and the visa expired.

In order to get A# (alien registration number) for H4, you have to apply for adjustment status (filing I-485). You have to file I-140 form together with I-485 form. However, if someone has applied separately I-140 form, I-140 needs to be approved before filing I-485. This is the only way I know about getting alien number (A#) for H4 visa holders. Any other ways, or alternative answers will be more helpful for related persons.

You can. You will have to find an employer just like your spouse did for their H1B. And then, you will have to climb mountains to convince them to apply for your conversion from H4-H1B Realistically speaking though, it is very difficult if you are in non-IT related field. Reasons being: 1) Many employers don't know about this bizarre H4 Visa! 2) H4's don't get SSN - given current economic situation, a lot of employers ask for your SSN while filling in online applications 3) Quota Problem! H1b filing starts in April and even if you find an employer willing to do this conversion for you - you will not be able to start work until October. Ask yourself, would you offer someone a job and them wait 7 months for them to come on board? Unless, the person you are hiring has super unique skills and has come from another world! PS - not discouraging you..just giving you the "real" picture so you can plan ahead. Cheers, Just Another H4 Visa Holder Apparently I hold an MBA, B.Tech - previous work exp with Microsoft and IBM in HR and speak fluent English! Welcome to US!
