H1-B Visa Suspension

The H1B visa is a work visa requiring the applicant to be sponsored by a US employer to apply. Therefore, someone who wishes to enter the US through an H1B visa needs to gain employment from a US employer who will be willing to sponsor you into the US. Ahead of the US Presidential Elections, Donald Trump may suspend employment visas in an effort to arrest unemployment in the US. The move is likely to impact technology companies who use the popular H1-B visa. These visas are used extensively by Indian IT companies, as also US tech companies to recruit Indian talent, among others.
