H1-B visa is a non-immigrant visa programme of the US for highly skilled foreign workers. In the recent years Indians are the biggest beneficiaries of the programme getting more than 70% of what is given out annually by the US. H1-B allows companies to employ foreign workers in occupations that require technical expertise in areas that are difficult to fill. Recently the White House has made a proclamation restricting the issuance of non-immigrant work visas across the board, purportedly to clamp down on American jobs going to foreign workers, a consistent policy priority of the Donald Trump administration.
