H1B Premium Processing Resumed by USA
Good news for all the H1B aspirants. The US have resumed premium processing of H1B visas after a gap of almost an year now. (Source: ET)
Previously, after the Trump administration came to power, premium processing of H1 visas were temporarily paused citing “rush” for H1B visas. This update had caused a lot of criticisms for the Trump administration.
Many NRIs feared that it meant the beginning of the Trump administration cracking down on immigration and many were expecting more harsh reforms to the current immigration laws.
It’s a great idea to get Travel/Medical insurance when traveling to USA. As medical cost (even for the common cold) can run into hundreds of dollars in the US, it is recommended that you get good medical insurance, before your trip. Good thing is that if you buy it online before your trip, it may be cheaper. Compare & find a good plan here.
As China and India eats up the major share of all available H1B visas to the US, there had been raising concerns from the countries over the new reforms.
Turns out that the pause was only temporary and at least for now, there are no more “bad news” for folks from India aspiring for H1B visas to USA.
If you are an H1B aspirant, check with your employer/sponsor-willing company to see if they can file a petition at the earliest. All the best!
