H1-B Visa

The H1-B Visa is a non-immigrant visa that enables US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that requires theoretical and technical expertise. In a bid to protect American workers, the US President Donald Trump extended the freeze on these visas along with other types of foreign work visas until March 31, 2021. This decision is expected to affect large number of Indian IT professionals, who were issued with these visas for the fiscal 2021 beginning at 1 October.
