PROPOSED CHANGES TO H-1B, H-4 SPOUSAL WORK PERMITS, AND EB5 VISAS COULD BE COMING SOON
The USCIS published proposed Public Charge regulations that would affect nonimmigrant and immigrant workers. In addition, the USCIS also hopes to roll out new proposed changes to the H-1B, H-4 Spousal Work Permit and EB5 visa programs. The plans for the H-1B program could include: a proposal to create a pre-registration program for employers; a new definition of "specialty occupation"; a continued demotion of computer programmers as "specialty occupations"; and requiring staffing companies to provide full itineraries. The H-4 Spousal Work Permit program changes would involve phasing out the program. The EB5 changes would increase the investment threshold and focus more on rural areas.
