end work permits for H-1B visa holders' spouses

US considers to end work permits for H-1B visa holders’ spouses


The United States is seriously considering to revoke work permits for spouses of those H-1B visa holders who are waiting for their green cards.

The drive to end the 2015 rule will have an adverse impact on over 70,000 H-4 visa holders, who have work permits.

H-4 visa is generally issued to the spouse of H-1B holders, a large number of whom are high-skilled professionals from India.
