Work Authorization for Dependents of Individuals in A and G Status

For years, many family members of individuals in A (diplomats) and G (employees of foreign government agencies) nonimmigrant status were not permitted to work. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) changed this by amending its regulations governing the employment authorization for dependents of foreign officials classified as A-1, A-2, G-1, G-3, and G-4 nonimmigrants. This rule expands the list of dependents who are eligible for employment authorization from spouses, children, and qualifying sons and daughters of A or G foreign officials to include any other immediate family member who falls within a category of aliens designated by the Department of State as qualifying.
