Will Trump’s New H-1B Visa Rules Leave an Impact on International Students?

Trump’s administration has yet again announced the tightening of H-1B Visa Rules. And this decision of scrutinizing H-1B Visa Holders will greatly affect professional well-being of most of the Indians holding that visa.

How will it affect Indians working in the US?

H1-B and L-1 Visas are the most popular visas among Indians residing in the US. So, the new strict verification process will not only affect the first time goers who are planning to reside in US via H1-B Visa, but also those already holding this visa. This simply means that it will be quite difficult for professional Visa holders to extend their visa after its expiry.

As per facts, every year around 85,000 highly skilled workers are invited to US by big IT firms. This will not only affect Indian Professionals, but also Indian Software companies that have a large number of Indians working there.
