The US Citizenship and Immigration Services or USCIS has made plans to transfer the applications of H-1B visas to another center. This plan has been made to clear the backlog so that people can work in US. The government agency has stated that the workload will be reduced by sending the visa processing applications to the California center.
Currently, the workload is more on the Vermont Service Center. This will help in receiving the notices regarding the new H-1B visa applications more quickly. In recent months, visa processing has been slowed down because of the existence of huge backlog. Another reason for the slow processing of the applications is the shortage of staff.
The lottery for the H-1B visa has taken place last month. The candidates selected through this lottery have to send their applications so that they can become eligible to work in USA from October 1, 2022.
The Congress woman Mia Love also stated the problem of the pending petitions for the extension of the visas to the Senate Judiciary.
The US companies will gain access to employ the skilled workers easily in order to compensate the job market demands. This will help in the growth of the US economy and inflation issues can also be dealt easily. Around 70 percent of the H-1B visas are issued to the Indians.
