Washington. Another milestone is about to be reached for the benefit of thousands of foreign tech workers working in America on H-1B and L1 visas. As part of this, the United States plans to resume the revalidation of national visas in certain categories on a pilot basis. Whose objective is to increase its number in the country for the next few years. The pilot project, which will begin later this year, once fully implemented, will be a great relief to thousands of Indian tech professionals living in the United States.

Until 2004, certain categories of US nonimmigrant visas, including H-1B visas, could be renewed in the United States. After that, for the renewal of these visas, especially H-1B visa holders must exit the United States. Most of them have to return to their home country to get the H-1B visa extension stamped. Currently, H-1B visa renewal is not permitted in the United States. These renewals can only be done at any US Consulate. This is also a major inconvenience for foreign workers. Especially when you have to wait around 800 days to get a visa.

America issues from H1-B visa to L-2 visa, learn all about it…

H-1B visas are issued for three years at a time. The H-1B visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows U.S. businesses to employ foreign workers in certain occupations. These are tasks that require technical expertise. Tech companies depend on this visa to hire thousands of employees each year in countries like India and China. Applicants will no longer need to travel abroad to renew their visa after the start of a US government pilot project later this year.
