A H-4 visa is issued to the dependent member of the family of H1-B visa holders. L2 visa is given to dependent spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 of the person holding L1 visa. L2 visa holder can seek employment opportunity in the US, however holder of H4 visa cannot seek employment opportunity automatically and they need to file an employment authorization document.
“Although this is a giant achievement, the parties’ agreement will further result in a massive change in position for the USCIS, which now recognizes that L-2 spouses enjoy automatic work authorization incident to status, meaning these spouses of executive and managers will no longer have to apply for employment authorization prior to working in the United States,” the AILA said according to a PTI report.
Moreover, the spouses of L1 visa holders will no longer have to apply for a separate work permit before arriving in the US.
This will be a breather not only in terms of getting clarity on the work environment but also in terms of financial burden because each work permit application costs $495 for submission, according to media reports.
