Significant revisions are coming to H-1B – Spouses will no longer be included
The Trump Administration is looking into revoking the automatic ability of spouses of H-1B workers to automatically be qualified to work. According to a CNN article:
“Since 2015, the spouses of H-1B, or high-skilled, visa holders waiting for green cards have been eligible to work in the U.S. on H-4 dependent visas, under a rule introduced by President Obama’s administration. The tech sector is a major employer of H-1B visa holders, a category of visas for highly skilled jobs.”
This is worth watching. When H-1B holders know that their spouses automatically get a work visa, they have even more incentive to work under H-1B. The spousal jobs might or might not be tech related. However, the impact is that revoking the rule will provide a disincentive to H-1B workers.
