New Research Article on the Importance of the H-1B Visa Program
The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) recently published a research article on the future of the H-1B visa program. In the report, NFAP calls for greater availability of H-1B visas to ensure that the U.S. remains competitive in a global market. H-1B visas enable skilled foreign-born workers to enter and work under that nonimmigrant visa status in the U.S. for three years, enabling U.S. companies to recruit and hire from an international pool of talent.
NFAP comments that even when the economy is uncertain (as it is now), employers still consistently need talented persons on an ongoing basis and the annual cap of 65,000 H-1B visas will most likely be met before the end of the fiscal year.
