A vast number of the population currently residing or studying in the United States is experiencing turmoil from receiving authorization and remaining residency in the country.
Employers of big industries who have been outsourcing employees from neighboring countries are having trouble looking out for new and fresh professionals to come and work for them.
It has become more challenging to work in the United States, under which, President Donald Trump executes the order “Buy American, Hire American”
For some, the H-1b visa program allows foreign nationalities, some of which have earned a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in the U.S. And through the time, they can be issued with a permanent stay.
With the growing professionals currently residing or having applied and got their h1b denied, the interests of these people have suddenly shifted towards Canada, as the country welcomes more workers.
Why Does H1B Get Rejected?
There are various reasons why immigration will hand you over with h1b denied. In the last season, thousands of skilled foreign nationals rushed to file their application for an H-1B visa.
Applicants reached approximately 85,000. And it is said that officers will be on the favor of those who have earned a higher education, a master’s degree, or above from U.S schools.
Underneath Are Some Of The Components That Affect Your H1b Application:
- You may lack the required specialized knowledge or sufficient proof or portfolio to show that you’re capable of providing a particular skill. They will need you to have a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or trusted professional reference.
- You don’t have enough proof for a good employee/employer relationship. Without sufficient documents by a petitioning employer, you should submit an H1-B with the work contract agreements of your employer.
- You don’t have adequate funds to show. The up to date fees have increased just recently this year. It is essential to know that you will pay $460 for the preliminary expense of the application. Petitioners are also required to submit a fee worth $4,000 for specific H1-B visa requests.
Why Does It Get Harder To Obtain An H1-B Visa?
In the last two years, the restrictive immigration policy under President Trump Administration had made tremendous effects and has raised the delays and restrictions for the H-1B visa application.
It is declared by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that the approximate time to finish your H1-B visa application will take 5-10 months for foreign nationalities. The time to process such a request is long for
American employers managing a business. It discourages human resources to even hire top-notchers outside the United States.
Premium processing has been disabled by USCIS last September 2018. The benefit of this premium process allows applicants by paying a fee of $1400 to accelerate the process of attaining this visa. But this special effect has gotten to be in the past.
Applications without RFE or NOID will be automatically denied. Without being issued first with a Request for Evidence or Notice of Intent to Deny, the applicants will be subjected to a lack of evidence, which results in USCIS to deny applications immediately.
Written above, are some of the minor changes that bring discomfort for people that want to reside in the United States.
Some foreigners may get to study hard to be working in the United States, but current circumstances look difficult. The American dream may be a long road to traverse, but who knows; maybe a different country is in dire need of your specialization.
