US stops giving new visas till the year end

Due to Covid-19 pandemic and weak economic conditions, people in the US are losing jobs. The country has decided to stop giving H-1B, H-2B, L-1A, L-1B, J-1 visas to outsiders for the first time between June 24 and December 31. The Trump government said the new policy will not affect the existing H-1B visa holding Indians in the US.

This US policy leads Indians who are planning to get H-1B visas to stay back home. India can use these highly skilled youth in the science and technology sectors in India. It helps to India’s progress says Indian government sources.
