What is an H1B visa? For US President Donald Trump it is a ‘cheap labour programme’ , for Indians and others it’s a golden ticket.

Currently there are only 65,000 H1B visas under the general category and 20,000 for advanced degree holders but so far there has been no cap on any specific country – which is why the false alarm about the US putting a 15% cap on H1B visas for Indian applicants was alarming.

Now there are a bunch of different visas to apply for if you want to go to the US, but why do we always hear about H1B? Long story short, this is what people look to for a career and an American life because this one can potentially get you a green card. But it’s not nearly as easy to apply for this visa anymore. To know the new guidelines, tune in to The Big Story!
