US visa ban: Why has Trump suspended H1-B visas?


Exempt from the order are medical staff directly concerned with research into coronavirus.

Thomas J Donohue, the chief executive of the US Chamber of Commerce, said: “Putting up a ‘not welcome’ sign for engineers, executives, IT experts, doctors, nurses and other workers won’t help our country, it will hold us back.

“Restrictive changes to our nation’s immigration system will push investment and economic activity abroad, slow growth and reduce job creation.”

In the USA, a H1-B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ graduate-level workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise in specialized fields such as in IT, finance, accounting, architecture, engineering, mathematics, science, and medicine to name a few.
