Stripe

The Biden administration has proposed a significant hike in immigration fees, including the H-1B visas, reports Business Today. H-1B visas are much sought-after and are very popular among Indian techies. This visa allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require certain technical expertise. US tech companies bank heavily on this visa in order to hire techies from India and China.
The proposed rule has gone under a 60-day public opposition period, following which it is expected to be enforced.
