The H-1B visa is the primary method for employing foreign nationals in the U.S. It is a very important visa for F-1 students who attend U.S. universities, as it is how they can work in the U.S. after they graduate. Due to the limit of H-1B visas in the U.S., many of these U.S.-educated foreign students are leaving the U.S. to share the knowledge they have gained here in other countries that have more flexible immigration systems. The U.S. has 85,000 visas available annually, which brings in approximately on average $2,500.00 in filing fee revenue plus on average creates 5 U.S. jobs per H-1B worker. There were over 781,000 applications for H-1B visa this past year and almost 700,000 applications were rejected, which could have brought in approximately $1.75 billion in revenue to the U.S. and possibly created 3.5 million U.S. jobs. Instead, Canada has realized the value of these U.S.-educated foreign students and has created a special visa program for them.
Great news! USCIS has released a new online tool that allows foreign nationals to reschedule their Biometrics Appointments online. Previously, in order to reschedule a Biometrics Appointment, foreign nationals or their attorneys had to call the USCIS Contact Center and request to be rescheduled. However, now foreign nationals can reschedule their Biometrics Appointments online.
Please note: foreign nationals cannot use the online tool if their appointment has been rescheduled 2 or more times already, or is within 12 hours of the appointment, or already has passed.
