H-1B Visa Application Process: 10 Things To Know

Donald Trump H-1B Visa Application Process: 10 Things To Know
Conrad Doyle | 04 April, 2018, 18:09

The required process of filing petitions for most sought after H-1B visa begins today amidst unprecedented scrutiny by the Trump led administration.

According to US Citizenship and Immigration Services, there will be zero tolerance for minutest of errors.

As per the reports the immigration attorneys have high rate of expectations of rejection.

Experts say the application process has been taking longer than before, as the USA government has begun scrutinising each application, delaying work for IT companies who require manpower for urgent projects.

The H1-B visa has an annual numerical limit cap of 65,000 visas each fiscal year as mandated by the. In previous years filing of duplicate petitions, by companies, so that applicants could have a greater chance in getting through the lottery had become a normal practice.

In an email response to DH, the USCIS Public Affairs Officer Arwen FitzGerald stated that on Monday, the Department will begin accepting H-1B petitions subject to the FY19 cap.

At the same time, the USCIS said while premium processing is suspended, a petitioner may submit a request to expedite an FY 2019 cap-subject H-1B petition if it meets the expedited criteria.

The Donald Trump administration recently announced a new measure, making the approval of H-1B visa more tougher.

If the applicant wants an extension of stay or change of status, he/she should include supportive evidence to establish that the beneficiary will maintain a valid nonimmigrant status through the employment start date being requested, USCIS said in its filing tips. "Indian IT companies welcome the scrutiny, but we should not be targeted, and rules should be the same for all applications, irrespective of whether it is from an Indian company or an American company", Singh added. As in the previous years, Indian companies would have to pay much more fee per application in comparison with other countries. "Employers who abuse the H-1B visa programme may negatively affect United States workers, decreasing wages and opportunities as they import more foreign workers", it had said. They include employer names and locations but excludes worker locations.

Singh acknowledged that there had been heightened U.S. government scrutiny targeting Indian companies applying for H-1B visas.

"Yet, too many American workers who are as qualified, willing, and deserving to work in these fields have been ignored or unfairly disadvantaged". The visa is in demand in Indian skilled professionals.

Who applies for H-1B visa?

"H-1B visa holders create jobs and raise wages for native-born Americans by bringing their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit to the science, engineering, and tech sectors, creating American jobs and benefiting thousands of businesses and countless communities across the country", he said.
