Suspension On Expedited H-1B Visa To Affect IT Cos

US’ decision to temporarily suspend the expedited premium processing of H-1B visas will lead to process delays for  IT firms too.

Greyhound Research Chief Analyst and CEO Sanchit Vir Gogia said that while the change by the Trump Administration has taken most by surprise, it shouldn’t be viewed as a “conclusive outcome” from their end.

“While the loss on the back of this change will be felt maximum by US companies in need for skills in urgent projects, it will also rightfully be a step in stopping abuse of the H-1B visa programme that is currently rampant,” he said.

Gogia added that while the Trump administration has taken the right approach to talk about a merit-based system overall, the next step ideally should be to hold an open dialogue with both those who use skills and others who supply them.
