H1-B Visa Applications Sees an Upsurge in Inquiries from the US Authority

September 2017, 02

As per the recent announcement that was made on August 28, states that Indians would find difficulties in converting their H1B visas to a green card or permanent resident visas. From October 1 onwards USCIS has made the process of in-person interview mandatory. This refers to the I-485 adjustments of the status interview as per the technical terminology.

US immigration attorneys on the other part are seeing a rise in the number of RFE's (Requests for Evidence) that is being issued by the USCIS. These RFE's are the result of the applications that were filed on April 2017 and is said to be valid from 1st October 2017.

David H Nachman, managing attorney of NPZ law group states that USCIS presently is in need of interviews for naturalization and green card based processes. It some times also waives of the interview requirements for both the categories of applicants. The interviews for the transformation of visas from the H1B to green card use to follow a standard procedure a decade ago, but waive off was still granted at that time.

As per the new policy, there would be no further waivers, and the new process would instead extend the waiting time for the applicants of a green card.

A majority of the green card is said to be issued to those candidates who are already working on a temporary visa in the US.

As per the report by Bipartisan policy center, over the four year periods up to 2014, more than 2 lakh green cards were issued to the H1-B visa holders.
