A legislation seeking to stop the Trump administration from revoking the work authorisation of spouses of H1-B visa holders, which include Indians, has been introduced in the US Congress by two lawmakers. They said eliminating this benefit would force many foreign workers to use their talent to compete against American businesses.
H-4 visas are issued to the spouses of H-1B foreign workers. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa through which many Indians workers are employed in US companies. It allows the US firms to hire foreign workers in speciality occupations that need theoretical or technical expertise and is the most sought-after visa among Indian tech professionals. H-4 visas are issued only to very close or immediate family members of the H-1B visa holders.
