Already Difficult H1-Bs Get Even More Difficult To Receive

The lottery process for H1-B Visas, already difficult to navigate successfully, has just been made more difficult due to a rule change from the Trump Administration.

From the article:

“The Trump administration has unveiled its proposed changes to the H-1B visa lottery, which would favor applicants with more advanced degrees and change the application process for companies seeking skilled foreign workers.

The rule change, published this week in the Federal Register, comes on the heels of President Donald Trump’s 2017 “Buy American and Hire American” executive order, which directed the Department of Homeland Security — which oversees visas and immigration — to “suggest reforms to help ensure that H-1B visas are awarded to the most-skilled or highest-paid petition beneficiaries.”
