The Trump's move to end the work permit for H-4 visa holders could impact more than 70,000 Indians in the US. H-4 visas holders, who have work permits is issued to the spouse of H-1B visa holders.


A majority of people from those are high-skilled professionals from India. They had obtained work permits under a special order issued by the previous Obama administration. According to that rule, Indian-Americans were a major beneficiary of this provision. More than 100,000 H-4 visa holders have been beneficiary of this rule in 2015 issued by the Obama administration.


H-1B visa holders seek permanent resident status in the US to get settled down with their spouses and this process takes too much time, in some cases can take a decade or longer. Hence, the Obama administration allowed work permits for spouses who otherwise could not be stayed with H-1B visa holders.
