New Delhi: The US government has now relaxed some of the rules of H-1B visas, allowing the visa holders to enter the United States if they return to their same jobs they had prior to the visa ban.
According to the US Department of State, the spouses and children of the H-1B visa holders will also be allowed to travel back to United States.
“Travel by applicants seeking to resume ongoing employment in the United States in the same position with the same employer and visa classification,” said an advisory issued by the US state department.
According to multiple reports, the Trump administration has also allowed the travel of technical specialists, senior-level managers, and other workers who hold H-1B visas to US as their immediate resumption of work is necessary to recover the economy of United States.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump had signed ban on H-1B visas on June 22.
The government has also allowed travel of people who are healthcare professionals and are working in public healthcare, researchers of COVID-19 and people involved in ongoing medical research on substantial public health benefit.
“Travel supported by a request from a US government agency or entity to meet critical US foreign policy objectives or to satisfy treaty or contractual obligations. This would include individuals, identified by the Department of Defense or another US government agency, performing research, providing IT support/services, or engaging other similar projects essential to a US government agency,” added the advisory issued by US state department.
