Bill Seeking H1B Visa Exemption For Foreigners With US PhD Introduced – AfterGraduation

Posted on 28/05/2017

A bill has been re-introduced in the House of Representatives seeking exemption for foreigners with an American PhD in science, technology, engineering or mathematics to benefit Indians given that they constitute the largest number. This exemption is from the limits on the number of employment-based green cards and H1B visa awarded annually.

Introduced by Congressmen Erik Paulsen and Mike Quigley, the Stopping Trained in America PhDs from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act, is likely to benefit Indians given that they constitute the largest number of students doing PhD in the US.

US universities have registered a sharp decline in the number of applications from Indian students after a spate of hate crimes and fear and anxiety about potential changes to visa policies by the Trump Administration.
