H1-B visa- American Visa great for Canadian Immigration
H1-B visa at one point of time was the most popular visa of United States prior to the election of President Trump in 2016. This visa allows US companies to hire foreign skilled workers to their companies who can meet their work requirements. H1-B visa in the past decade was issued to nearly 3 million people out of which majority of them opted to work in tech-related fields. 65% of the Indian population received H1-B visas this showcased that the program was extremely popular among Indians.
With Donald Trump Presidential rule, H1-B visa program reduced severely. Under President Obama, 87% of H1-B visas were approved and on the other hand in 2017, Trump approved only 58%. The Trump administration also implemented new changes that made more difficult for H1-B visa holders to extend their stay. The H1-B visa is usually valid for maximum of 3 years.
While, United States of America is creating difficulties for the migrants willing to come in America, on the other hand, Canada is loosening its immigration policies to welcome more migrants coming to their country.
