It has only been a week since Joe Biden was sworn in as America’s 46th President. But the way the Biden administration is reversing the decisions taken by the administration of former President Donald Trump, migrants living in the US are benefitting significantly. In this series, the Biden administration has taken such an important decision, due to which Indian H-1B visa holders working in America have breathed a sigh of relief. In fact, the Biden administration has allowed H-4 visa holders’ employees of H-1B visa holders to continue working.
During the tenure of former President Donald Trump, the employees of H-1B-holding employees had doubts about whether they would be allowed to work further after spending four years in the US. But now with the decision of the Biden administration, those fears have now come to an end. Significantly, the Trump administration had taken a strong stand on the migrants. During this time, the rules were tightened for those coming to America in search of work. At the same time, now this decision of Biden is going to benefit Indians living in America.
Obama brought the provision of H-4 visa
Significantly, during his reign, Barack Obama passed a law permitting H-1B visa holders to work in the US. But Donald Trump made many efforts to repeal the law after becoming President. However, this administrative decision of Biden has brought it to a halt. Spouses of H-1B visa holders were granted permission by the Obama administration to work in the US under H-4 visas, but the Trump administration reportedly tried to end it under an agenda.
Indians will get big benefit
Let us know that there are many rules regarding visas for foreign workers residing in America. H-1B visas are given to people who work in an American company while staying in the US. On the other hand, H-4 visas are given to their spouses so that they can work in America. However, he was severely criticized when the Obama administration decided to exempt H-4 visa holders from working. A large number of Indians go to America via H-1B visa, in such a situation, they are going to get a big relief from this decision.
