    H-4 visa is given to the spouse and unmarried children (below 21 years old) of an H-1B visa holder. H-4 visa holders are admitted to the US at the same period for which the H-1B visa holder is admitted. Laws and regulations surrounding H-4 visa include the following:

    1. H-4 family members may study in any schools and universities in the United States for any educational level/degree.
    2. H-4 visa holders cannot participate in any form of employment, except for H-4 spouses, who are able to obtain Employment Authorization Document (EAD) from the USCIS.
    3. H-4 family members who are not permitted to work cannot be issued with a Social Security Number, but they can get an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
    4. H-4 visa holders are allowed to open bank accounts with credit unions and some banks in the US.
    5. Family members with H-4 visa are also allowed to get a driver’s license.
