Indian techies + spouses in US prefer Canada Work Visa options
Posted on June 30, 2018
Indian techies and their spouses in the US now prefer Canada Work Visa options even as the policies of President Trump remain a big threat to them. The IT talents in the US from India are exploring alternative options and Canada and Mexico are their top preferences. They are currently facing curbs for their US Work visas.
Trump is increasingly toughening the rules for US Work visas. These include terminating the H-4 visa for H-1B visa holders’ spouses. H4 is the authorization for employment to the H-1B spouses to work in the US, as quoted by the Economic Times.
Recruitment agencies have said that in last 12 months there is a 100% hike in the CVs that they are receiving from Indian techies and their spouses in the US. This includes firms such as ABC Consultants, Manpower Group, Adecco, Randstad, and TeamLease. They have even added a new category of job applicants – spouses of Indian IT techies.
The situation is even more complicated for some than just finding a job. This includes those who may be forced to quit the US. Randstad India Managing Director Paul Dupuis said that they received nearly 1000 CVs in the beginning of 2018. This is a huge increase over the same period in 2017, he added.
Adecco Group India’s Professional Staffing and Permanent Placement Director Mayank Patel said that till 2017, there was a meager flow of job seekers from India in the US. In 2017 only those who had personal emergency were leaving the US. But in 2018, the number of CVs has surged by 2 to 3 times, added Patel.
