H-1B visa pathway to the US is being rejected by young entrepreneurs owing to long wait times and they are moving to alternative destinations like Canada. One such example is Vikram Rangnekar who was an H1-B visa holder in the Silicon Valley. He moved out of the US owing to the waiting times for Green Card that became torturous to bear.
Vikram is really pleased with his decision to quit the US. He is amongst the several immigrant professionals who are rejecting the H-1B visa pathway to the US owing to painful waiting times for Green Cards. Rangnekar has even launched a website movnorth.com. This website details his experiences and encourages others to take the call to leave the US.
The frustration amongst the most capable and smartest skilled immigrant professionals in the US is growing. What makes things worse for them is that their fellow H-1B visa holders received the Green Cards quicker for reasons apart from expertise. These applicants got PR just because they were from nations with less population and area.
Rangnekar said that he decided to look for alternatives to the US as he did not want to wait for years for a Green Card. His friend running a thriving start-up INFLUITIVE in Toronto assisted him in comprehending the tech ecosystem that is growing at a fast pace. The PR process of Canada is transparent and simple, said Vikram.
Toronto is a fun-filled city with high quality of life. People living here enjoy the beautiful lakes and nature surrounding it, said Vikram. Toronto also has an exciting ecosystem for tech sector with companies such as Amazon, Uber, Shopify, and Google. It also has the presence of several start-ups. Thus it is a place with much to offer for aspiring immigrants, adds Vikram.
