USCIS Seeks Public Opinion On Proposed Rule To Improve Immigration Visa Policies

01 Jan 2016


Immigration News

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USIC) have kept the proposed set of rules for immigration visas in the public domain to seek their opinion before making it a law. The USIC mentioned 29th February 2016 as the last date for seeking the opinion of the citizens of US on the new immigration policies.

USIC has proposed to improve some aspects of skilled non-immigrant and immigrant Visa programs. These amendments allow US employers to hire and retain skilled foreign nationals who are approved under visa petitions looking for lawful permanent residents. 

The various other things proposed by Department of Homeland Securities (USA) to regulate and improve the conditions in order to:  

•    Clarify longstanding policies under American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act (AC21) and enhance the role of USCIS in judging the role of foreign nationals VISA status.

•    Enable U.S. employers to retain beneficiaries of the I-140 petition and provide stable and flexible conditions to the foreign nationals.

•    Improve job portability for I-140 petitions by limiting the automatic revocation of petition approval.

•    Clarify individual’s priority date for seeking lawful permanent, in case when USIC has rejected I-140 application on employer’s lack of support for petition or business shut down.

•    Allow highly-skilled foreign nationals in E-3, H-1B, H-1B1, L-1, or O-1 nonimmigrant visa categories to apply for unrestricted employment for a period of one year. 

•    Changes include possible extension of Visas after the completion of valid employment period. Extension of Visa programs to facilitate foreign nationals to find a new job.

These proposed changes will be in public domain till February 29, 2016 for seeking opinion and will be effective once after publication of the final rule in the Federal register.
