The US will overhaul the H1-B visa programme by January.

The US will overhaul the H1-B visa programme by January. The Trump administration will revise the definition of “specialty occupations” for which the visa is granted, and also tweak the definition of “employer.” The move, aimed to “better protect” US workers and wages, will likely impact Indian IT companies and small contractual firms that are already grappling with tightened H1-B norms. Besides, the Department of Homeland Security reiterated that it had decided to revoke work permits for the Obama-era H-4 visa, a move that will impact nearly 70,000 legal immigrants, mostly Indians.
