U.S Slammed Over $10 Non-Refundable H-1B Visa Registration Fee
Ian Raj has slammed US President Donald Trump’s immigration policy as ‘unpopular’, and criticised the recent Non- refundable increase of H-1B Visa by $10.
The NDDTV commentator said the administration has always found a way to stiffen policies for migrant from under developed countries to have access to practice in the US.The commentator added that “the US should increase the amount to $10,000, so that the funds can be used to train some of the millions of unemployed people in the US who also lack rare talents.”
The reaction follows the recent announcement by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that the H-1B work visa application fee has been increased by $10 as part of its revised selection process.
USCIS said the non-refundable fee will support the new electronic registration system to make the H-1B cap selection process more efficient for both petitioners and the federal agency.The Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli USCIS said, “This effort will help implement a more efficient and effective H-1B cap selection process.”
“The electronic registration system is part of an agency-wide initiative to modernise our immigration system while deterring fraud, improving vetting procedures and strengthening program integrity,” he added.
Recall that before the increment, the H-1B Visa application was apportioned as: Base filling $460: American Competitiveness and work force improvement (ACWF) Act of 1998 $750 or %1500: Fraud Prevention Fee $500: Fee based on: Public Law 114-113 $400: Premium Processing (optional) $1440 and Immigration Attorney Fee $500-3000.
