Biden's H1-B Visa plans: Possible Green Signal for Indian Students and Professionals?
The Show Time
With Biden and Kamala Harris established in the White House, there is likelihood of good news for Indian students and professionals. The new government is expected to change some of the decisions made by the Trump administration including the restrictions on the H1B visa, which allows American companies to recruit foreign experts in occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. According to the policy document issued by the Biden government, it plans to increase the number of employment based immigrant visas in the country and allow migrants to gain permanent legal residence in the country. It also aims to provide a green card to foreign doctoral students and exempt recent PhD graduates in STEM fields from any capital.
The government also plans to create a new visa category allowing cities and counties to petition for higher levels of immigrants to support their growth.
