H-1B visa is one of the most sought-after American visas, and the US Agency has recently clarified that those working on this visa can have more than one employer. It is a great benefit to both employee and employer. It is through this visa that American companies can have the feasibility to employ international professionals in exceptional occupations who have the necessary technical expertise through this employer will benefit.
For many people living in countries like India and China, this is the visa that helps them fulfill their American dream come true. For the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the federal agency is the agency that is responsible for screening and approving the H-1B visas, and it has now clarified that while the holders of such particular visas can work for more than one employer, but they must have to get I-129 approval for each.
H-1B Visa Applications for Fiscal Year
When an employer or a prospective employer needs a non-immigrant worker in the US, it is the I-129 that has to be submitted by them to get him on a non-immigrant visa. The maximum number of H-1B visas that can be issued for every fiscal year has limited to 65,000 only. It is the little bit disappointing for many people who want to work in the US.
However, there is an exemption to the first 20,000 petitions made on behalf of those who have a US Master’s degree or higher. Also, those holders of H1-B who employed at an institution of higher education or its affiliated non-profit organizations or a government research institute or a non-profit research organization also have been exempted.
Lot changes happening in the way visas are getting processed in the US, and expecting with more stringent rules being put into place, the denial percentage could go up to 40% on the H-1B visas.
