|Visas for high-tech talents in the United States have increaseD.Recently, the Senate Immigration Reform Act of the United States Congress has introduced a series of preferential policies for "high-tech talents" immigrants.
In addition to significantly increasing the number of H1-B work visas, some new visa categories will also be introduced, which means it will be easier for students studying in the United States to stay in the United States.
According to the existing immigration law in the United States, there are several ways to obtain the U.S. Green Card, such as family immigration, investment immigration, professional immigration, talent immigration and so on.
For Chinese studying in the United States, professional and talent immigration is the main way.
If you want to stay in the United States, H1-B visa is one of the most convenient ways.
The visa is a kind of work visa applied for by American employers for foreign senior technicians.
It is valid for three years and can be extended for another six years after its expiration.
The new quota is 65,000 a year, and another 20,000 are reserved for professionals with master's degrees or above in the United States.
Both H1-B visas have been in short supply over the past two years.
However, the United States Immigration Act stipulates that the number of green cards granted to applicants in a country cannot exceed 7% of the total number of green cards issued annually.
This means that applicants from populous countries like China and India get the same number of green cards every year as applicants from hundreds of thousands of European countries.
That is to say, many Chinese have to "queue up for many years" even if they apply for green card approval through normal channels.
According to the latest data released by the U.S. State Department on February 11, 2013, applications for skilled immigrants born in mainland China have just been processed until February 2008, while applications for Indian immigrants have only been processed until 2004. Immigration experts say that because the U.S. government does not want to increase the number of immigrants each year, this new type of visa will squeeze out some other categories of immigrants.
In terms of work visas, 65,000 H1-B visas will be increased to 110,000 and 20,000 exemptions will be increased to 25,000.
According to the plan, the increased work visas will be issued to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) graduates from American schools.
There are no quota restrictions on immigration applications for special talents, distinguished professors and researchers, senior executives and managers of multinational corporations, doctorates and certain doctors in any field, and their spouses and children.
This means that the number of immigrants with advanced degrees and master's degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at American universities will increase.
