Visa Crunch

USA: Amazon, TCS, Infosys, Cognizant, Google Lead The H1-B Recruiters List

The H-1B visa season has begun, and registration will begin on March 1.

As soon as the USCIS published the dates, Indian tech businesses began planning to file petitions for their staff. After two years of pandemic-induced disruption, this year appears to be going well, with vaccination completed in many regions of the world.

The news of H-1B Visa registration has also delighted the Indian tech community since it means that many techies’ American dream will be realized through this program.

STEM, computer science, and business-related jobs are well-known to dominate the H-1B sector. The H-1B program has also benefited America by helping to fill a lack of highly talented workers in fields such as technology, science, medicine, and business.

In the United States, over 70% of these visas are granted to Indians in order to fill a shortage of highly educated individuals in the technology and information technology sectors. In order to reach the necessary limit of 85,000 new visas in the fiscal year 2021, the US had to run two visa lotteries due to a lack of applications.

According to Madeline Zavodny, a research fellow at NFAP, there is also no evidence of higher employment growth or reduced unemployment rates for college graduate US residents as a result of decreased admissions via the H-1B program, according to the paper.
