The US bid to put in place new wage rules for those employed on H-1B visas has been blocked by a court, with a federal judge in New Jersey granting a business group a preliminary injunction which prevents the US Department of Labour from putting the rule into practice.
Recent changes to the condition for issuing H-1B visas, which many companies, predominantly those in the technology sector, use to bring in skilled workers from abroad, have made them much less attractive to use.
An American executive order on H-1B visas will only hit US firms badly, as it will prevent intra-company transfers by Indians who are working for American banks, automobile companies and pharmaceutical firms, the head of Tata Consultancy Services, India's biggest outsourcing company, has warned.
The US has suspended the issue of green cards and new H-1B visas in a move that has been slammed by the IT industry, a sector that depends on H-1B holders to carry out a sizeable amount of work.
Four men of Indian origin, three of whom ran two IT staffing companies in the US, have been charged with committing H-1B visa fraud by bringing job-seekers in on false claims that they had secured positions with companies in the country.
The United States has told India it may place curbs on the number of H-1B visas which can be issued to people from countries that insist overseas firms must store data locally.
The US has finally decided on the changes to be made for the granting of H-1B visas, one effect of these being that the proportion granted to foreigners with a master's degree or higher from an US institution would be increased.
Changes in visa rules introduced by the Trump administration may force Microsoft to move some jobs out of the US, the president and chief legal officer of the company, Brad Smith, has warned.
A decision on the right of spouses of H-1B visa holders to work in the US has been deferred yet again by the US Government, leaving tens of thousands of people uncertain of their future.
Despite numerous indications that there would be many changes in the H-1B visa allocation from this year onwards, the process has been gone through in more or less the same fashion as in 2017.
Moves by the US to deny the spouses of H-1B visa holders the right to work, a privilege granted by the Obama administration, will go ahead though they will be delayed by a court case.
A senior Republican member of the US Senate plans to introduce a bill, possibly as soon as this week, to more than double the number of H-1B visas issued each year.
The US appears to have backed down from a plan to stop the renewal of H-1B visas, which is often undertaken by companies who hire workers on such visas, in order that the worker in question can remain in the country long enough to obtain a green card.
Companies in the US that hire foreign workers on H-1B visas may be blocked from renewing the same, a common occurrence which is undertaken to help the worker stay in the country long enough to obtain a green card.
Spouses of H-1B visa holders may no longer be able to obtain work permits if a change proposed by the Trump administration takes effect next year as planned.
US technology companies that employ foreigners on H-1B visas will find it more difficult to obtain renewals of these visas after the US Citizenship and Immigration Services tightened the procedure for renewal.
Major IT outsourcers in the United States obtain the lion's share of H-1B visas but pay wages that are below average, according to figures released by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
