H-1B applicants Being Advised To Apply For An O Visa July 20, 2017 13:27

H-1B applicants Being Advised To Apply For An O Visa:- Instead of the numerically capped H-1B visas, the potential H-1B applicants are being advised to apply for an O visa, alleged a top American Senator. The H1-B visas are intended for highly-skilled workers to bypass legal restrictions on employment visas. For foreign visitors with high skilled capabilities, the H-1B is valid, while those who have extraordinary abilities or a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement, the O visa programme, is intended for use. The O visa program, unlike most other visa categories, has no numeric cap. Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, citing media reports claimed that “in the last decade, the number of O visas issued has tripled”. He further said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly stating, the rise in numbers alongside these reports raise concerns about the future integrity of both visa programs. “Visas intended for exceptional individuals are not a substitute for H-1B visas. Any attempt to flout the extraordinary requirements of the O visa program because an applicant cannot acquire an H-1B potentially constitutes visa fraud and ultimately damages both visa programs,” Mr Grassley said. “I am raising my concerns to Secretary Kelly so that he can prevent potential abuse and ensure that the integrity of both the O visa and the H-1B remain intact,” he said in a statement. In his letter to Mr Kelly, Mr Grassley said that the recent news articles suggest that to “get around [the President’s] H-1B order”, certain aliens should consider applying for O visas. This is mainly because the O category has no numeric cap and is “largely free of restrictions”. “The tenor of these articles raises concerns that individuals might abuse the O visa petition process by fraudulently asserting qualifications they do not possess to bypass legal restrictions on other employment visas,” said the letter which was released to the press today. Grassley further said O visa is given to foreign workers having extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics or a “demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement” in “motion picture and television productions”. “Despite the rarity of such exceptional qualifications, O visa issuances have tripled in the last decade, from just over 30,000 in 2006 to just shy of 100,000 in 2016. Given the validity period of up to three years, nearly 300,000 recipients of O visas could be working in the United States right now,” Mr Grassley said in his letter. SUPRAJA
