Can H1B visa holder’s dependent, who has H-4 visa status, get a Work Permit?
As of May 26, 2015, it is possible for the spouses of H-1B holder to apply for the work authorization. Certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants can file for Work Authorization now if the H-1B nonimmigrant is the principal beneficiary of an approved I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker or has been granted H-1B status.
This final rule, seeks to support the goals of attracting and retaining highly skilled foreign workers and minimizing the disruption to U.S. businesses resulting from H-1B nonimmigrants who choose not to remain in the United States and pursue LPR status.
