About 35,000 Comments Acknowledged on the Latest Federal Visa Regulation

Around 35,000 comments were acknowledged by the US regarding the Optional Training program (OPT) plan extension for the STEM students from the existing 29 months to 36 months. The last date for commenting was in this week.

The report says, by raising the duration of the time for the students who are able to work on the student visa, the state is extremely trying to offer these students extra time to gain an H-1B visa

The need for the H-1B visas, from the IT outsourcing corporations, are making it complicated for those students who have succeeded from the U.S schools to obtain the work visa.

The report adds that most of the comments which have been received by the US are advocating this program. The report also highlights that if the hard work of the government is not successful then so many STEM students might be enforced to leave the nation. 

In order to bring the program into achievement, the government of the U.S is following behind the court with the guidelines mentioned. 

The report says that the country has increased the scope of the program; hence the program of the STEM (OPT) has extended from 17 months to 2 years. This results in the extension of student visa from 29 to 36 months.
