WASHINGTON: The US can soon change the H1-B visa policy, which will have an impact on the 1 million Indians working there. Actually, the Trump Administration has sent a proposal for change in the H-1B visa policy, in which only foreign workers will be able to work in American companies which will be the best. There are 100 Indian companies in 50 US states Of these 1,13,000 Indians are working.
On Wednesday, the US Department of State and the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) have prepared a proposal for January 2019. Accordingly, H-1B visas will be given to foreign workers who have been the top in their work. According to the US Home Ministry, we want to truly change the definition of employment so that relations of company and employee can be improved. Additionally, US employees and their salaries can be secured.
In the proposal, H-1B visa holders have also been told to get the proper salary. The Home Ministry has also proposed that H-1B Visas of H-4 Visas will be considered as Alien Eligible for Employment. An alien registration card is issued in the US. Its holder is considered a legitimate expatriate, who has the right to work and live in America. According to the US Home Ministry, the demand for H-1B visas in general is quite high. We are considering introducing electronic registration program for applications. Under this, immigration service will be able to better manage H-1B applications.
H-1B is a non-immigrant visa issued to foreign workers working in American companies. Tech companies call thousands of employees from countries like India and China on this basis. Generally for the foreign workers this visa period is three to six years.
