The H1B-H4 issue has once again made it to the headlines. The Trump administration is planning to propose to end allowing spouses of H1-B visa holders to work legally in the US. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been working on it. The move to end the Obama-era rule could have an impact on more than 65,000 H-4 visa holders. H-4 is generally issued to the spouse of H-1B visa holders, a significantly large number of whom are high-skilled professionals from India.
