Washington [USA] | January 11, 2019 8:41:32 PM IST
United States President Donald Trump on Friday announced potential changes in the H1-B visas, including the provision of a 'path to citizenship' for highly talented and skilled visa holders.

"H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S," he tweeted.

H-1B is considered the most sought-after work visa among highly-skilled Indian professionals. It is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.

However, the visa does not provide any permanent path to citizenship for immigrant workers coming to the US.

The announcement of a revision in H1-B visa rules comes at a time when the US government has reached the 21st day of shutdown on Friday, with no solution of reopening the government in the near future. (ANI)
