Wage based H-1B work visa

The wage based H-1B work visa regime has been brought in by the recent amendment to USA’s H-1B visa norms. This system gives priority to higher wages and skill to determine deserving candidates. This replaces the older lottery system for work visa selection. Of all the work visas offered by the USA, H-1b remains the most popular due to better wage chances. Over the years, the H-1B visa norms have been altered to allow or disallow certain categories of skilled workers depending on USA’s economic situation.
