Starting May 17 of this year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that spouses of holders of an H-1B and L-1 visa will no longer need to have their fingerprints taken to renew their visas.
This requirement that was emplaced by the Trump administration caused long delays on applications and job loss.
According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, spouses of holders of an H-1B and L-1 visa are eligible to apply for H-4 and L-2 visa. These visas allow these immigrants to work in the United States temporarily.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said that this suspension will be lifted after two years. More information will be given to the public in the coming days.
