Good news for Indian IT professionals, the ban on the issuance of H-1B visas ends
President Joe Biden did not issue any notification in favor of the continuation of the visa ban. He previously promised to lift the ban on H-1B visas, calling Trump's immigration policies cruel. Explain that H-1B visa is a non-non-resident visa.
The ban on visas issued to foreign workers, including H-1B, is over. The move is expected to benefit millions of Indian IT professionals. Indeed, Trump imposed a stay on such visas until 31 March, but the Biden government did not issue any notification to pursue it. This neutralized the order of the previous government. Between the lockdown and the Corona crisis, Trump had in June last year halted the issuance of visas for foreign workers, including H-1B, until December 31. Trump had argued that domestic workers would suffer if foreign workers were allowed to enter the country. He later extended its time period to 31 March.
President Joe Biden did not issue any notification in favor of the continuation of the visa ban. He previously promised to lift the ban on H-1B visas, calling Trump's immigration policies cruel. Explain that H-1B visa is a non-non-resident visa. It is issued to an employee for six years of work in the United States. Companies in the United States are granted this visa to retain skilled employees who are lacking in the United States. There are also some conditions for this visa. For example, a person who has received this graduation should have special qualification in any one field. Also, the salary of the employee who gets it is required to be at least 60 thousand dollars i.e. about 40 lakh rupees annually.
There is also a specialty of this visa that it also makes it easier for people from other countries to settle in the US. H-1B visa holders can apply for permanent citizenship after five years. The demand for this visa is so high that it is issued every year through lottery. H-1B visas are the most commonly used by more than 50 Indian IT companies such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys and Tech Mahindra, as well as large US companies such as Microsoft and Google. H-1B visas are quite common among Indian IT professionals.
