Are you an Indian spouse of a H-1B visa holder dreaming of working in the United States? Well, it’s time to celebrate! America recently granted work permits for Indian spouses of H-1B visa holders. This is great news for many families who have been struggling with restrictions on employment and career opportunities. In this blog post, we’ll explore what this means for you and how to make the most of this exciting opportunity. Let’s dive in!
America has granted work permits to Indian spouses of H-1B visa holders
When an Indian citizen marries a U.S. citizen, they are given the opportunity to obtain a work permit if they meet certain eligibility requirements. As of October 1, 2017, America has granted work permits to Indian spouses of H-1B visa holders. The decision follows an announcement by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in April of this year that it would begin allowing H-1B visa holders to apply for employment authorization for their spouses on a case-by-case basis. This change is intended to address the many cases where the foreign spouse is unable to find work due to their lack of qualifications or experience.
Indian citizens who have obtained permanent residency through marriage to a U.S. citizen are generally eligible for a work permit under the same conditions as other immigrants with similar backgrounds and qualifications. In order to qualify, the applicant must demonstrate that he or she is able and willing to engage in full-time employment and meets all other requirements specified by USCIS. The process of obtaining a work permit can be lengthy, so applicants are advised to contact USCIS early in the application process in order to maximize their chances of success.
The move by America signals a major change in policy towards immigration from India and could have significant consequences for both the economy and social stability in India’s traditionally tight labour market. It is likely that more couples seeking such permits will now be able to obtain them as estimates suggest that there are well over one million
The move is seen as a sign of America’s commitment to welcoming immigrants
With the new Trump administration in charge, many are looking to see what trends will come out of this. One of these trends is certainly the move to grant work permits to indian spouses of h-1B visa holders. This is seen as a sign of America’s commitment to welcoming immigrants and their families.
Not only is this a step forward for immigrants and their families, but it is also seen as an opportunity for businesses who may be struggling with the high cost of labor. For example, if a company has an employee who is on an H-1B visa, but their spouse is also from India, they now have the opportunity to bring that employee over onto their own payroll without having to go through the costly process of hiring an American worker.
This move by the Trump administration also sends a clear message that America wants to continue attracting top talent from around the world. In addition, it shows that we are not afraid to open up our doors and welcome people who want to come and make a life in our country.
The decision comes days after the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of allowing an exception to the federal rule that limits the number of H-1B visas that can be issued each year
On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that it would be issuing work permits to spouses of H-1B visa holders in order to fill critical job openings. This decision comes days after the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of allowing an exception to the federal rule that limits the number of H-1B visas that can be issued each year. While this move is likely to appease some congressional Republicans who have been critical of the program, many immigration experts are skeptical about its long-term efficacy.
The H-1B visa is a specialty visa that allows skilled foreign workers to temporarily work in the United States. The program has come under fire in recent years as technology companies have been accused of using it as a way to replace American workers with cheaper foreign labor. Critics of the program argue that it leads to lower wages and fewer jobs for American citizens.
While Tuesday’s announcement may provide some relief for those concerned about the impact of the H-1B visa on U.S. jobs, experts say it is unlikely to solve the larger problem posed by technology companies’ reliance on cheap foreign labor.
The move is likely to affect around 60,000 couples who are married to American citizens and hold H-1B
The U.S. has announced that it will start granting work permits to spouses of H-1B visa holders, starting next month. The move is likely to affect around 60,000 couples who are married to American citizens and hold H-1B visas. This decision was taken after an amendment was made to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) in March this year. The amendment states that the spouse of a H-1B visa holder is also a beneficiary of the visa, meaning they are allowed to work in the United States while their visa is valid. This change was prompted by concerns over abuse of the H-1B program, which allows employers to hire foreign workers for skilled positions in order to reduce labor costs. Spouses of H-1B visa holders have been largely left out of the debate over reform of the program because they are not employed directly by companies sponsoring their visas – instead, they are usually employed by companies that contract with sponsorships agencies or consulting firms who act as intermediaries between sponsors and employees. However, this lack of clarity about their legal status has led many spouses to suffer from abuse and exploitation at the hands of their employers. The move towards granting work permits to spouses will likely benefit both sides – as it will give them more legal rights and protections, while also giving employers a pool of talented and qualified workers from which to choose.
