When someone who lives in another country decides to come to the United States for a job, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. This is particularly true when that person who has been granted a work visa has other members of his or her immediate family to think about. While schools will need to be selected for young children, spouses too may consider what they will do while residing the U.S. Historically, getting a job was not always a part of that picture. That is soon set to change. It was recently announced that changes were made to a visa rule that will make it possible for some individuals married to highly skilled immigrants to secure jobs.
