It is being expected that stringent rules for visas would be implemented by the United States as Donald Trump took over as the country’s forty-fifth President.

Here are some proposals as quoted by the Times of India.

It would entail raising the minimum salary that an H1B visa holder should earn to $100,000, up from the present wage ranging between $61,000 and $71,000.

It would empower the US DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to scrutinise, audit and implement compliance with L-1 programme.

They would see to it that the most talented students in the US will be given priority for an H1B visa.

A clause would be deleted that lets immigration authorities gloss over intricate paperwork if applicants for an H1B visa have a master’s degree or equivalent or higher.
