Washington [USA], Jan 11(ANI): H1-B visa, which is availed by a large number of Indians, is set to be simplified.
"H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S," he tweeted.
H-1B is considered the most sought-after work visa among highly-skilled Indian professionals. It is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.
The announcement of a revision in H1-B visa rules comes at a time when the US government has reached the 21st day of shutdown on Friday, with no solution of reopening the government in the near future. (ANI)
