The Logical Indian reports on President Trump and the State Department's relaxation of H-1B visas:
"The United States administration has relaxed some regulations for H-1B visas permitting visa holders to enter the country if they return to do the same jobs they had before the visa ban.
"The State Department said: "H1B and L1 visas can now be issued for employees who are seeking to resume ongoing employment in the United States in the same position with the same employer and visa classification.”
Relaxation of the H-1B visas should please those companies that objected to tightening initially, including Apple, Microsoft and Facebook, whose share prices have risen dramatically in the past while.
"The US Department of State advisory stated that dependents, or spouses and children, would also be allowed to travel with the visa holders. "Travel by applicants seeking to resume ongoing employment in the United States in the same position with the same employer and visa classification," the state department advisory said.
The Trump administration has also allowed travel by technical specialists, senior-level managers and other workers who hold H-1B visas, saying it is necessary to facilitate the "immediate and continued economic recovery of the United States".
