Washington sources reported that US president Trump government's move to cancel work visa to certain categories of H-4 Visa holders is in the last stage, the authorities told the US court and the H-4 visas are issued to the spouses of H-1B visa holders. Meanwhile this latest move would affect nearly 70,000 Indian techies.



Media reports stated that the H-4 visa is an Obama-era administration's executive order where spouses of H-1B visa holders too could legally work in the US. Accordingly the rule is currently in final clearance and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told a federal court that the proposal, after getting DHS' clearance, will be sent to the Office of Management and Budget for review under Executive Order for regulatory and planning review.

Previously a group of 130 US lawmakers led by Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal appealed to the Trump administration to continue issuing work authorization to certain spouses of non-immigrant workers holding H-1B visas. Accordingly nearly 93% of the total H-4 visa holders in the US having work authorization are Indians and the final notification to rescind the work authorization is expected to be published in June.
