J2 Work Authorization

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows whether there are any restrictions on the type of employment a J2 spouse can hold? Is the work authorization good for any job?

We just returned to Canada, but while we were in the US, I was a J-1 and my spouse was a J-2 with the work authorization (EAD). Yes, the EAD is good for any job. The work restrictions for the J-1 does not apply to the J-2 (so, a J-2 with EAD has a lot more work options than the J-1, but that makes sense since the reason for the J-1 to be in the US is to pursue studies, not work).
