Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Are changes coming to the number of H-1B visas allowed?

Problems with immigration are still considered a hot topic among U.S. lawmakers. While one of the biggest concerns frequently reported has to deal with the number of undocumented immigrants currently living in and coming to the country every year, visa issues are something many would also like to see addressed. When it comes to H-1B visas, which are needed for certain types of employment, approval can be difficult to get. The lack of availability not only hurts immigrants but also employers in California and throughout the country.

Current laws only allow for 65,000 H-1B visas to be granted to foreign workers every year. Once these are released for the year, they are typically gone in a matter of days. Current proposals in the Senate, if passed, could increase this number to 195,000.

This type of visa is required for skilled workers, meaning those who hold a specialized degree for their field of work. Professionals, such as doctors or engineers, need this type of visa in order to work in the country. As the tech industry is booming, the number of visas available simply are not enough to meet demand. An increase in the amount allowed every year will not only benefit immigrants looking to come to the United States for the opportunities the country offers but also employers looking for qualified employees.

Along with increasing the number of H-1B visas released every year, proposals currently working their way through the Senate include increasing the number of green cards approved for skilled workers and their family members. While only time will tell if an increase in this type of employment visa will be offered, those looking to come to the United States for work, whether in California or elsewhere, deserve their best chance at getting visa applications approved. Legal support is available to help hopeful immigrants and employers navigate through this complicated process.
