What are the new rules by US to limit H-1B visas to foreign workers?

The Trump administration issued two new rules that make it harder for US companies to employ people on H-1B non-immigrant visas.

He claimed that the new system would be better for American workers. The Department of Homeland Security announced the new regulations for so-called H-1B visas for highly-skilled workers, which allow up to 85,000 immigrants annually.

It will require US employers to pay high-skilled foreign workers significantly higher wages. The rule also requires foreign workers to have a degree in the “specialty occupation” they apply for. For example, a software developer won’t be awarded the visa if she has a degree in electrical engineering.

The move, with less than a month to go for the US Presidential election, is likely to hurt Indian technology professionals

The new H1-B rules will impact US companies as well as Indian services and staffing firms who often place workers on projects at third-party locations.
