After Donald Trump taking over as the US President, many sensational news on H1-B visa affected Indian NRIs and students in the foreign country. With a view to boost employment for Americans, Donald Trump led government declared tightening of work visa rules. But, in a recent statement, an US minister has clarified that no such changes will be implemented in the near term.
'We are not bringing any bill to alter H1-B visa rules,' said Thomas Vajda, acting deputy Assistant secretary for South and Central Asia. 'In order to make changes that are suggested by Donald Trump, few more laws in constitution require a major change,' the official added. Thomas made this revelation while speaking to media in Kolkata after attending Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry meeting.
On the other hand, it's already reported that America is gearing up to call off the lottery system to issue H1-B visa and only offer them to eligible candidates based on the merit.
