US H-1B and L-1 visa doubling of visa fees controversial

The much reported visa fee increases for both the H-1B visa (from $2,000 to $4,000) and the L-1 visa (from $2,250 to $4,500) have unsurprisingly caused some ripples between Indian and US official bodies. This visa fee increase applies to Companies that have more than 50 employees more than 50% of which are H-1B visa employees. This affects mainly Indian owned companies in the US.

Another leading industry figure, Sanchit Gogia, expects the affected Indian IT companies will simply soak up the additional charges by increasing fees to their clients.
