This week, a new set of strict provisions were introduced to the H1-B visa, under which companies hiring foreigners to work in the US will have to pre-register electronically for the annual H-1B lottery. The new policy will involve additional paperwork in the already cumbersome process, including increased scrutiny, especially for employers like IT service companies.
The DonaldTrump administration is well-known for its hard-line anti-immigration stance. In 2017, the Trump administration was reported to have plans to curb H-1B visa extensions that could result in self- deportation of an estimated 500,000-750,000 Indian Americans. The H1B visa is issued for three to six years to employers to hire a foreign worker.
