US to modify H1-B Visa selection criteria

Date: 09 January 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • The United States announced that it will modify the selection process for H-1B visa, giving priority to salary and skills instead of the current lottery procedures.
  • The final rule is aimed to protect the economic interests of US workers and better ensure the most highly skilled foreign workers benefit from the temporary employment programme.
  • The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.
  • The technology companies depend on it to hire tens of thousands of employees each year from countries like India and China.
  • Modifying the H-1B cap selection process will incentivise employers to offer higher salaries, and/or petition for higher-skilled positions, and establish a more certain path for businesses to achieve personnel needs and remain globally competitive.
