US Extends Employment Authorization to Spouses of H1B Workers

America H1B Visa
In a bid to entice and retain highly qualified immigrants from India, the United States announced two plans, which include extending employment authorization to partners of selected H1B workers.

The US employers will be able to recruit qualified foreign workers on temporary work visas termed as H1Bs. According to the prevailing rules, the US does not provide employment authorization to spouses of H-1B workers.

Now with the implementation of new rules, the Department of Homeland Security expects that these rules will assist to allure new investment and businesses in the US and make sure that the country equips with the most qualified workforce across the world.

Sources revealed that these rules will permit spouses of H1B non-immigrant workers to make a request to employment authorization.

Notably, 65,000 H-1B visas were issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services over last year.
