Indian Techies who reside in the US are not having it rosy in the country as the government seems to be no longer interested in granting visa extensions. There are some of those who have remained determined to file for a new H-1B visa, while a lot of them have been left with the one option of returning home to India. While the number of visa extension denials is on the increase, there is also a spike in the number of Requests for Evidence (RFE) made. An RFE is a notice issued by US authorities to visa applicants when they need more information and supporting documents regarding their visa applications. This stalls the visa process and makes the cost more expensive for companies. The USCIS had last week announced that premium processing will be resumed for the H-1B visa program, but Indian IT firms are still having a hard time extending the visa of their employees. Industry experts have revealed that this difficulty in the visa process is basically a direct result of the present government's focus on making more jobs available to Americans.
