What are Obama Work Visas (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)
Individuals who came to the United States as children and meet other key guidelines will be considered for the deferred action (Obama Work Visa) for childhood arrivals program. The program allows individuals who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and may be eligible for employment authorization.
Essentially it means that those approved will be allowed to live and work in the United States for the two-year period that the approval lasts. However, it is a complex issue and you should consider meeting with an attorney before starting the process. The program is not an actual “visa,” rather it defers any action being taken by the Government against an individual who qualifies and allows them to work here in the United States.
