According to information gathered by Computerworld, India-based firms remain the largest users of the H-1B visa for computer –related jobs. With the exception of large U.S. tech firms—Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Oracle—the top 25 firms using the H-1B visa lottery program are based in India or are U.S. companies involved in large offshore operations. Experts note that there has been a steady increase in the number of submitted visa petitions since 2014, with more than half representing new employment visas for computer-related jobs.
Meanwhile, out of the 233,000 H-1B petitions that were filed with the USCIS this year, only 85,000 was selected, about 36%. Thousands of professionals educated in US universities who are working using Optional Practical Training (OPT) will be forced to leave the US and return to their home countries.
