Indian skilled professionals to be affected by US curbs on H-1B visa: MEA

The Ministry of External Affairs said on June 25 that suspension of H-1B and other work visas by the United States will impact the movement of skilled professionals.

"This is likely to affect the movement of skilled professionals who avail these non-immigrant visa programs to work lawfully in the United States.

We are assessing the impact of the order on Indian nationals and industry," said Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava while addressing a virtual press conference.

Donald Trump administration allows H-1B visa holders to enter US on conditions

The Trump administration has relaxed some rules for H-1B visas holders. They have been allowed to enter the United States if returning to same jobs they had prior to the proclamation of the visa ban. Dependents (spouses and children) will also be allowed to travel along with primary visa holders, said the US Department of State advisory. The Trump administration also allowed travel by technical specialists, senior-level managers, other workers who hold H-1B visas as their travel is necessary to facilitate the economic recovery of the US. The administration also allowed travel of visa holders who are working as public health or healthcare professional, or researcher to alleviate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, or to conduct ongoing medical research in an area with a substantial public health benefit. Earlier on June 22, US President Donald Trump had signed a proclamation, banning the entry of workers in several key non-immigrant visa categories including H-1B. Trump had argued that they eat into American jobs during Covid pandemic. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.
