    US on 24 February 2015 has announced to allow work permits to spouses of H-1B visa holders from 26 May 2015. Currently, spouses of H-1B visa-holders are not eligible to work. However, The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting applications for work visas from H-1B spouses from 26 May 2015. USCIS estimates the number of individuals eligible to apply for employment authorization under this rule could be as high as 179600 in the first year and 55000 annually in subsequent years.
