From Gloom to Glee: Major US Immigration Update for H-1B and L-1 Holders
Big Us Immigration Update Provides Cheer For H-1b And L-1 Visa Holders Amid Cloud Of Uncertainty And Job Loss
The latest news confirms that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services has amended Employment Authorization Documents rules offering another lifeline to immigrants who got laid off from big tech firms.
Following the latest US immigration update, there might be some hope left for Indians in the US during the ongoing uncertainty after recent layoffs in big tech corporations. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has introduced a new policy, PA-2023-18. It offers a new guide map on Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) at a highly uncertain time.
The new policy gives a legal way to beneficiaries of approved employment-based immigrant visa petitions experiencing delays because of backlogs in visa availability. It is safe to say this reform can turn into a valuable lifeline for Indian workers in the US. Interestingly, everyone expects the policy to minimize the unpleasant effects of sudden job loss or other unfavourable outcomes that could put their status in danger.
The policy will prove beneficial for Indians living in the US specifically. This is because most of them are a part of the 100+ year green card backlog for EB-2/3. Plus, losing a job gives a person 60 days to find another one. Otherwise, they would be asked to leave the country even if they have been here more than 10 years trying to build a life.
