After getting a master’s degree a student is permitted to work in America for a period of one year, which is extendable to three years, if he is from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) category. A work permit (H1B visa) is not required for such students.
Not at all. Students with an American degree can avail of a special quota, of 20,000 H1B visas. In addition to this quota they can also apply for the general quota comprising 65,000 H1B visas.
The new immigration policy is being formulated, probably before 31st March 2018, in which students with American degrees will be given priority for H1B visas.
There is no restrictions specific to India.
President Trump passed an executive order aimed at giving more weight to higher skilled and higher paid workers.
Students getting MS/Ph.D. degrees from US universities will not be impacted as they are offered jobs directly by US companies at high salaries.
The restrictions will affect the issuance of visas to Indian outsourcing companies, which file multiple applications, utilizing a majority of the H1B quota and pay lesser salaries compared to US employers.
Students getting degrees from good universities still manage to find jobs within a few months of graduating. Currently, America has the lowest unemployment rate which has dipped to an unprecedented 4.6 percent.
Students of Dilip Oak’s Academy invariably join only accredited and well-known universities. Most of them find jobs in the US quite easily.
H1B visa is company specific. Any person is not allowed to earn from other sources.
If you are from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) category you can apply for visa thrice, since the OPT period for STEM students is for three years. Non STEM students can apply only once. If their application is not approved in the lottery they have to come back to their home country.
No. It will not affect your chances.
There is no such rule neither it is likely to be announced in the near future till the US Government finalize new immigration policies.
