Washington: The United States Government under Joe Biden has decided to review all the objections on foreign workers and their visas like the H-1B visa, due to the previous Government’s three policy memo.
The following move by the Biden Administration has come forward as a sigh of relief for several Indian IT
Professionals working in the States who were going through a tough time during the former president Donald Trump’s regime due to his objections and policies on non-immigrant visas.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) on Friday stated that, “It may reopen/reconsider adverse decisions” on Form-129, a petition made for the non-immigrant workers based on the rescinded three memo policies.
The USCIS stated that it will generally use its power to accept a motion to reopen filed 30 days after the decision, if filed prior to the end of the validity period requested on the petition or labour condition application, whichever is earlier, and the decision was based on one or more policies in the three rescinded H-1B memoranda.
According to a Federal Agent, the USCIS will generally process motions based on their filing order and a current policy guideline.
The USCIS has also announced that it has the discretionary authority to welcome and think about the other untimely motions based on certain circumstances as per instructions in the form.
