Accepting applications for work visas in the United States will begin in two weeks
April 1 The US Citizenship and Immigration Services will begin accepting documents for processing H-1B visas. Such visas allow US companies to hire a foreign specialist for up to 6 years. Under the category of H-1B are usually employees of IT, engineers, representatives of the scientific sphere. A visa is not immigration, but with it, you can get a green card.
This year, there has traditionally been a restriction on issuing visas of this type. In 2016, 65 of thousands of foreigners will receive them. And 20 thousands of people who have a master's degree.
According to the Service, already in the first five days of receiving applications, the number of applicants may exceed the permissible limit. Therefore, the staff of the Service plans to hold a lottery. As soon as the system selects 65 thousands of people, the reception of documents will be stopped. This procedure is not the first time, so no failures and errors should not occur.
С requirements H1B visa recipients are available on the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
Previously, ForumDaily wrote that the US presidential candidate Donald Trump intends to ban the J-1 visa, which allows foreigners to come to the country as part of the so-called “cultural exchange”, including the Work and Travel program. Each year, this program (J-1 visa), which allows foreign students to work in the United States, provides American companies with about 300 thousands of workers.
The billionaire believes that J-1 visas are beneficial only to companies that need cheap labor. Instead, Trump proposes replacing foreign students with young Americans, creating a bank resume.
